I felt very relaxed with the contour drawing. Several times I found myself drifting off. It is pleasing to stay focused on the outline rather than fleshing out all the separate parts. I'll upload my photos on the phone.
I started with the drawings and then added descriptions of the subjects. I’d like to also use the journal to remember a walk or a special time with family.
The comparison study is informative and enjoyable. My second comparison of two very similar flowers, the vinca and impatiens was rewarding.
It was hard for me to get the shape of the bird. I was also challenged by using the watercolors although I enjoyed how quickly the colors were applied. I had to look more closely at the bird to see his markings which I didn’t really capture in this drawing.
