    Gesture Drawing Exercise:  Not much detail just a basic outline, I didn't really get in any shading and proportions of parts are all wrong. unnamed (3) Refined Drawing:  I was able to add a lot more details to this drawing.  I had to do a lot of fixing of proportions and shading of light and darks.  The proportions still need work I think, there are still more details that I overlooked when I took a step back at my drawing.  It was fun though! unnamed (2)

    It took me a long time to draw but it was a great exercise.  The most difficult part for me was the body with all the different small shapes and trying to fit them into a larger space.  I tried to cram all the tiny shapes in. unnamed (1)

    It was difficult to not look at the paper and just stay focused on the subject.  I had to draw real slow to make myself stay focused on the subjects.  Contour Drawing

    I think I need to ask myself more questions, get me thinking about the finer details of the subject. unnamed (1)

    I like drawing from a photo reference.  However, the challenge for me was seeing the fine details in the photo.  I had difficulty with the background.  I wondered if I should have did the background color first then paint over it?  Should I have used a different brush?  Did I use too much water?  I had a harder time manipulating the paint to cover the negative space as opposed to coloring in the subject.  I think I would have seen more details to add if I was nature journaling. unnamed

    I have been drawing and painting every day since October 2018.  I participate in daily art prompt challenges and using different media in my art.  My husband and I recently have started birding.  I have been wanting to try nature journaling for a while now, but did not know where or how to start.  I came across this course while searching for ways to learn how to begin a nature journal. I would like to try Shayna Muller's way of nature journaling because her style seems to match what I would like to capture in my journal.  I like the boxes and having the art work peek out from the boxes while having journal writing surrounding my art.
