Keeping a nature art sketchbook or journal is my way of connecting two passions: my love of art and nature. Drawing and painting daily (or at least weekly!) the natural environment around me serves many purposes.
I strengthen my observation and my art skills. I learn a bit more about nature and the complex relationships between plants, insects, animals and humans. My knowledge of systems and cycles is transformed: time, weather, rocks, soil, and water are no longer abstract or lifeless.
