DRAW the Power & Memory

“All art is but dirtying the paper delicately.” ― John RuskinThe Elements of Drawing

Drawing and doodling is gaining a bit more respect these days. Once considered useless and a sign of not paying attention is actually turning out to be the opposite.

You actually recall a lot of what is not even depicted in the drawing, sounds,smells,music. This is the added benefit to sketching on location, especially while traveling.I myself experience this as a page through old journals of mine.

Try it our for yourself. Grab a pen, a notebook, sketchbook, napkin, anything and try doodling while your out. Record a bit of your surroundings whether it is in drawing or in words. I think you will enjoy the experience in more than one way.
