Travel Sketchbooks to Enjoy

Enrique Flores remembers his trips and travels through his Moleskin sketchbooks and shares them generously on YouTube. Go see them. Here is a recent one from a trip to Algeria. Like all good travel sketchbooks, one gets a rich impression of the moment, a moment that will always be remembered by the artist as it is sketched and impressions detailed. He manages to quickly sketch in watercolors and not overwork or stay in one area too long. I particularly enjoy his street scenes and buildings, knowing how hard they are to do for me! But his crowd and people scenes are very effective, too, for the quick study of the moment. His full blog is "4ojos" on the sidebar.
