Off and running! So glad to finally be putting pencil to paper and giving this a try. I liked sketching with a still photo so I could take my time and really focus on trying to get the proportions right - still have some work to do on that, but not horrified by my first effort. The heavy paper and graphite pencil were so easy to work with. I think I'm going to like this!
I've been wanting to improve my field notes and field sketching for years and this course came to my attention when I was in the Amazon rainforest in March. Two of my fellow travelers were enrolled in the course and their journals were amazing. I really like filling a page with a balance of notes and sketches in a blended sort of way. Not too formal and not to loose. Excited to get started!
