I have always loved nature and I enjoy drawing. When I heard about this course I thought...this is the perfect activity to take up while confined to home during this terrible spread of CoVid 19! I actually kept a type of journal, identifying wildflowers, when I was in my early teens. I dug it out and here's a picture from it. I was probably 12 at the time. I think I like the idea of small sketches with details, questions and observations noted on the page. I'm very excited to start this course!
This was a really fun exercise, and I can't wait to learn techniques and tricks to make my drawings come to life. My main take-away was that it's going to be much more challenging to draw a creature as when we see it in nature, because I had to refer back to the photo dozens and dozens of times to try to get it right!
