Travel Journal Page

travel journal pageI used two laws of perspective to help give this travel journal page drawing some depth. With distance, similar shapes appear to get smaller, and colors in general get lighter.

• Art Journal page or paper
• Black marker
• Colored pencils

1. Draw a border around the edge. Add a horizon line about 2/3  down the page. Draw a road and trees that got smaller and smaller.
2. With the lettering, try experimenting with staggered placement to loosen up the look. A journal should be one place where you don’t have to worry about keeping things in straight lines. Trace everything with a black Sharpie, going over the headline letters twice to make them darker.
3. Color in the pages with colored pencils. My favorite are the Prismacolor brand. I used the lightest shade of green for the distance fields, and a darker for the area that is up close. Different shades of blue could be used for the sky too.
