    Very helpful exercise to turn off what you THINK you see and focus on what you ACTUALLY see! IMG_0209

    I found this super challenging! But definitely helped me notice aspects of the shape that I might not have noticed. I think I will do this again as a warm up exercise for a drawing - to really SEE the contour lines. I'm laughing at how abstract my subjects are :) IMG_5706

    Drawing brings you way deep into the detail. I noticed things like the detail of the lichen around the branch, the unexpected angles of the bird's legs and talons, and the lines and shading of the feathers. Drawing what you actually see (vs. what you think should be there) is a real challenge - it's tough to get the lines and proportions right! Screen Shot 2023-01-08 at 12.35.41 PM

    Across the different approaches to journaling and field sketching, the practice does two big things: 1) enhances learning and understanding (noticing greater detail, discovering through patient observation), and 2) deepens the experience (being in the moment, remembering multi-sensory details of your own experience). I found this really compelling and am excited to jump in!
