    I like drawing from a photo because it stays still, but at the same time it lacks the life of a drawing out in nature. Here I can pay attention to details. I liked sketching the beak and feet, something I may not have been able to observe carefully when drawing outside.  I wondered about their shape and functions. I found the lychens to be challenging, especially the large one, because it doesn't have the same definitive shape and shading. Sketch 1, yellow warbler

    1. What inspired me: Lately, during the COVID 19 epidemic, I have been going into the nearby forest alone and observing, drawing and journaling. I was amazed at what I was learning just by paying attention. I also started to sketch the birds I was seeing, memorizing what they looked like, then returning home to identify them, learn their songs, and sketch them from photos.  I want to continue this rewarding habit and sketch more and more directly from nature.
