DOODLE ANYTHING, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE | TAKE NOTE FAST AND EASY | TIP 24 – 25

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.

      Hello Laura,

      Fast doodling is very useful at school when you need to take notes – and the teacher goes fast in explanation :).

      It’s also useful when you take personal notes and observation when you go a museum also – looking at paintings and sculptures.

      🙂
      Cheers,
      Chou-Tac
