It takes about 4 hours to go to Annecy from Paris by TGV (300km/hour High speed train). The landscape displayed fast behind the windows. It’s beautiful, but it’s actually quite redundant. Getting bored, I took out my sketchbook, and doodled a bit.
TIP 24 Never get bored | Doodle anything, anytime, anywhere
Taking a train, waiting for a date or even trying to sleep, kill your time at doodling.
You will discover many opportunities to draw and naturally improve with no much effort.
Drawing from a high speed train is actually quite challenging. Everything goes fast. The closest houses show up only for few seconds. It’s a great exercise to train your memory.
When I look at each doodle, the real picture flashed back into my mind.
TIP 25 Take note fast and easy
Doodling is a great way to take note. Some notes that may not make sense to people. But for you, it’s different. It will reactivate your memory. Even a clumsy doodle is enough for your brain to connect your brain to that specific object, painting, sculpture.
Along the way, I saw many design of lamp post. I guess you can roughly put the date on when was the last time the urban furniture has been updated.
Similar to the Sketch 9, Power-lines, the railways are full of these. There is a great mix of old and modernity that fascinate me. I may draw some more soon.
That’s all for today. Don’t hesitate to share your opinion.
