Wow! I am so excited to learn to draw the amazing scenes, or details and bits I see in Nature. I am captivated by even the smallest fungi and in awe. I want to be a part of it and find myself taking photos, but it's not enough to 'feel' what's happening. This is what inspires me to journal. I want to share what I see, and somehow until that manifests itself into some thing to share besides my exuberance - I will learn to draw.
Every person and their journal was great. I enjoyed all of the styles and could certainly place myself in the scenes, that each observer talked about. It seems like the action of drawing it (the scene), puts the emotion into the moments captured. No-one criticized their own work, but used all the lines as reference points to discuss what they saw. That was my favorite aspect of all the journaling. If I were to pick a style I like, or would even like to emulate (I dare say), but not copy, is the first 'journaler' that used boxes. Maybe the boxes made a reference for the language or verbal observations for her to connect - but if that was a book, I would be attracted to the feeling it gave me, and want to buy it to reinvent that feeling each time I opened the book. I want to learn to do that for myself and how I feel when I'm in Nature!
