    It kept me focused, that's for sure. But a bit frustrated--I thought we were getting away from long, heavy lines. My stuff looked like bad cartoons. I couldn't find a part that I did well (OK, being too judgmental here).

    I noticed patterns more on my second try. Observations of light and sound came easily (in the case of the sound of passing traffic, came frustratingly). Counting things and finding patterns was more of a challenge, maybe because my mind isn't very methodical ;-) Still, I loved how this exercise took me out of daily "to-do's" and into a world of wonder. I can't wait to try it again.IMG_2853

    1. How did you feel about drawing from the photo? What came easily and what was challenging? The hardest was not judging myself--I'm gonna need to practice drawing without self-judgment! The eye and beak came sort of easily, the proportions of the head and body were challenging. So were the lichens--yikes. Oops. Judging again.   2. Was there anything in the photo that you might not have noticed if you weren’t asked to draw it? Would this make a difference when nature journaling? Lots: the texture of the branch, the number of colors in what I thought was simply a yellow bird. I've seen them in the wild but never had a chance to study what they actually look like in detail. Will absolutely make a difference going forward!yellow warbler
