My husband and I saw a silver tip grizzly the other day. I didn’t get a picture so the next morning I made this quick sketch in m journal. I think one of my greatest strengths as an artist is being able to capture a moment after it has passed. I have taken my time getting there, but I am able to remember a lot of strong memories and details from images I capture with colored pencils. As a matter of fact, I created my first children’s book mockup when my husband and I were talking about a family vacation highlight he didn’t remember, which was so unusual because it’s me that typically forgets everything. That’s why I keep a journal!
Do you have any secrets for remembering details or capturing moments when your camera is unavailable?
