Note Taking

mushrooms_march15I have to admit that though I love drawing and painting for art’s sake alone, there is a part of me that relishes having a sketchbook full of notes straight from nature – I think there’s a bit of a wannabe scientist lurking in me somewhere, feeling very important in all her information-gathering and note-taking. And now that it’s spring – there’s all sorts of new things popping up: flowers and bugs and grasses and seedlings that may be gone or changed completely by tomorrow – it’s worth taking notice.

  1. This is stunning work, the perfect combination of beauty and study. I want to do more of this too, at the moment I feel like my hands are always so grimy with dirt that I never seem to take the time to sit down and sketch. This is a real inspiration.
