Nature Journalling and The Secret Garden
Hi Avery,,,Loved the part about your art classes with me. I would just support you in continuing to paint. You will learn a lot about how to use the medium from painting. Yes, sometimes is does not work out… but just learn why and try again. Regarding sketching…. Tip: start with the biggest shape… think where to put this big shape on your page… Think…sky, ground, water, … tree, house …. What is the largest… then just place a few other items.. think round, square, long , short … do not think : I must are it look like ….. think only the large shape…. All else you do later with the brush. I think you are ready to do more and I can help you relax about not being confident to sketch.
Avery, what a lovely, soothing post. I too am practicing with watercolours - it's experimental, humbling, and when I don't judge myself, so calming. Also - thank you for recommending Food Stories to your readers. It means a lot. Truly.
