Wow! That was different and quit difficult. My first two were barely recognizable, the nest two MIGHT you might have been able to ID?
Great exercise however and I was able to pick out something that made me say "oh, that looks a little like that part of the original" Very cool. Thanks.
2. I know for me, when I have seen this bird "it's all yellow". Doing the sketch it allowed me to really look for details. Seeing the browns and black in the feathers, noting the truly black eye, and observing the shape, size and color of the bill are all details that, for me, may have gone unnoticed even if I had taken a photo but not completed a sketch!
A great aid to honing observational skills.
2, I have worked on doing some botanical drawing so I was interested in the more scientific aspect of journaling. I love to study and identify plants found here in New Jersey and Florida (currently splitting time between the two states). I have a long way to go in my ID of the flora and I hopeful that journaling will assist in the process. Hope my sketches and drawing will even get close to the great work I saw in the video. Excited to be taking this class!
