Sketching in the passenger seat
One day I tried sketching the vehicle in front of me while my husband drove. This works well on the highway but not so much in town as the cars turn, stop, pass etc. This really surprised me as getting car-sick was a frequent and "wreck my day" event. I certainly could not read or look at a map etc. Keeping my eyes on one thing at a time (the vehicle ahead or my sketch book without moving my eyes side to side worked! I felt like I had a super power!
My preferred way to sketch in the car is in one continuous line/per vehicle using an ink pen A roll or gel pen (black Dollar store variety really works well) as it glides nicely and doesn't skip of get stuck. Without taking my pen off the page kept my place even on bumpy roads. I also like the look of the squiggly lines and having to go over some lines multiple times. We had to travel from Sicamous to Kelowna and back today so it really helped pass the time. With all the forest fires, the normal beautiful view was a smoky haze and I wanted to concentrate on something else! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
