Over the past two years I have visited two local birding sites in Alberta on a weekly basis (mostly) during the spring summer and fall, making notes on the birds I have seen. My goal was to observe changes over time. Now I want to take my notes and photos and create a summary page (or two) of each year's observations with paintings of those that stood out for me. I want to use a similar journaling method for my yearly visits to Vancouver Island. There is always something new to observe with each visit.
I found the nature journals in the video fascinating and took away lessons from them all. I was particularly drawn to Holly's journal with its very fine watercolour paintings because I too use that medium.
The challenge for me now is to not only make notes and take photos on my excursions but to also sketch in the field.
