Not peeking at my drawing was the hardest thing to do but I stayed focused on the lines and was surprised that my eyes and hand coordinated so well. This seems like a good practice to do to concentrate on the focus to really see the lines.
I am inspired to begin nature journaling to create a record of observations I make when I stroll through a natural habitat. I liked what one journalist said that drawing creates a record of what you see. You have to look closely to capture the details, much more closely than if you just take a picture. I like that I will have a lovely, permanent record of the things I see so that I can go to a field guide and more accurately identify birds and plants that I see.
