Keeping a Nature Journal is a beautiful book, that has been revised for over 20 years, such is its popularity. Used by schools to art teachers, this features selections from the author’s own journals (which she’s kept for 40 years) plus prompts and step-by-step drawing techniques, to observe the natural world around you, even right outside your door. Choose sustainable pencils to draw with.
This can not just hone creative skills, but experience the benefits of a stronger connection to the natural world. Learn how to hone observation skills, and find lessons to draw plants, trees, birds, animals and landscapes.
A keystone book for anyone developing their nature journalling skills. The insights of one of the best and wisest teachers fills every page. John Muir Laws (artist & naturalist)
