Drawing direct from nature

Getting close in on nature, plants & flowers can be a revelation. Plants we take for granted look very different when drawn with an intense, concentrated examination of the form & details. Spring is the perfect time for this, sketch wisteria buds one month then another sketch a month later reveals the transformation (see above). So get out in the garden, park, countryside with a sketch book, pencil &/or pen & do quick, accurate drawings of plants, noting & dating each one. Its great fun!
