I still don't find anything easy about drawing. I believe I still have much to do to overcome a perfectionist trait in me. It's still difficult to narrow the gap between what my mind wishes to do & what my hand does. It's not comfortable finding oneself in the midst of this struggle; but I'm not giving up. I will continue plugging along... rather--scratching along.
When I go out in nature I often take my camera. While the camera allows me to capture the moment w/out much delay, it doesn't give me the wealth of detail that journaling forces me to notice. I feel I get much more of what I see by journaling than by simply looking at something or by simply taking its picture. I was most attracted by Shayna Muller's method; I believe I'll try to follow her example.
