I will annotate my sketches with the date time and weather and location. I will sketch part of a scene that interest me and not try and make a artistic rendering in the field.
I think what inspired me to try nature journalling is the desire to capture detail and learn more about the object that I am interested in or seen and become a little bit more observant of what’s around me. Taking pictures doesn’t really do justice to what I want to do. I might try and take pictures of what I am sketching and perhaps seeling some details that I may not have time to draw due to weather or other things that might be a priority at that moment.
I’m sure I will develop other techniques that I haven’t thought of yet once I start journaling. I’m looking forward to seeing exactly what I end up doing.
