    That certainly was a test and amusing for sure.  Not posting my attempts.  I did fairly well on the Bird of Paradise I think because its lines were straighter.  the other three were well, lets not discuss.  Can definitely see where this skill would be usefull in the field.  Great exercise and I am going to keep trying!

    I found it somewhat easy to copy this, my first attempt, though it was very small and I felt quite stiff.  I say relatively easy since with a photo your subject is static which gives you time to start, stop, erase, start over.  I was pleased with my first attempt and I am encouraged to plow ahead. In the photo, I think the shading is more noticeable than through observation, and the lichen might have been missed.  However, i don;t think those details this would would be my main focus but overall observations.

    Hello All.  My name is Ellen (there seem to be a few of us I see).  I have recently retired settling on the New England coast.  I spend a good deal of time exploring my new environment and wish to chronicle my sights and feelings.  I hope that by doing so I may inspire my children and grandchildren to take time to see more and and take more care of our natural world.  That being said, I am thinking I will take the approach of dating, weather observations and location hen add sketches and pertinent observations.  I want to go back and remember those moments that has me stopping to watch a bird or snail, see an unfamiliar flower and more.  So I believe I will incorporate ideas from the first and last journal examples.
