I have always wanted to keep a nature journal so when Charlie at Doodlewash invited us all on a Nature hike for the month of June, I decided this would be the perfect time to start that journal in watercolor sketches!
I purchased this book last year and it has TONS of ideas! Always great to see how others keep their journals too – I’d highly recommend this book:
I started sketching these flowers in my journal last week with a black pen and watercolor pencils. They were identified as Himalayan Fleece flowers or Knotweed. I decided to go back to my yard in search of a second flower for my art journal yesterday.
