    • 318DA2DC-B56A-478C-B70A-0B852EB2EF1CDrawing in general is challenging for me.  It took a few hours to sketch the warbler and then try watercolor pencils. I can’t say anything came easily, but I enjoyed the process.  Having time to observe a photo is a plus.  Drawing offered me a better understanding of the bird’s coloring, the shape of it’s beak, and legs.  Certainly appreciate the opportunity to be more observant through nature journaling.

    Inspiration for nature journaling came to me through birdwatching and a couple of videos.   Many years ago I enjoyed the book ‘The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.’  I also watched the video and the series in the 1980’s.  In 2022 I saw the movie ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ and that did it…time to take up nature journaling. I believe Shayna’s approach with what she describes as a loop - drawing, writing, and research will be a good approach for me.  I also like the boxes she cleverly uses to surround the drawings.  All of the journalers contributed amazing ideas that I will return to.  Thank You
