I made a little deal with myself before I left for Europe.
I would bring along my art journal and do a few super quick sketches every day. Like, super quick ... only a minute or two of quick expressive drawings. No perfection, just quick hits of pen to paper.
It would be nice to fill one of my journals before I return home, which means 40 sketches of places that move me in some way.
Today I managed three while out and about in Berlin, and here's one of them.
These poor old feet of mine wandered around for 10 hours, letting my eyeballs go crazy over the layers of Berlin architecture, and letting my self be wifi free for most of the day.
Amazing how *present* one can be when not on one's phone. I even did old-fashioned navigation, checking the maps placed handily in various places rather than keeping my nose in my iPhone.
