    I love this idea, I also need to practice basic shapes a bit.

    Does anyone have advice on distinguishing between texture and light/shadow? I find I struggle to include both elements--light and shadow serve as texture in many of my drawings right now. Any tips would be appreciated, thanks!

    orange Liz, or anyone, do you have any tips on how I can adjust my stroke so that my lines aren't so evident, if that makes sense? I can really see each stroke, I'm hoping to blend it a bit more so each line stroke isn't quite so evident.

    I agree, it’s super intimidating!

    I work as an ecologist and spend a lot of time in the field in pretty cool places. This year, I want to challenge myself to beef up my naturalist skills, and I think nature journaling will help me get to know the flora and fauna in my backyard and in the places I’m working. I imagine my journal will mostly be a catalog of plants and animals that I see both in my neighborhood and in the environments in which I work. I am particularly fond of plants. From the examples, I think I’d like focusing each page on a single specimen with both a sketch and some notes about the species and where I saw it. I have often journaled when I travel and I am excited to add a visual element and a more daily routine to my journaling exercise. Since I’m often gawking at the natural world, a nature journal seems like a great idea.
