I felt a thrill when, at the first meeting of my Naturalist Certification class, I learned that we would be required to make drawings to illustrate our journals. This was welcome incentive to draw, a skill I’ve neglected to develop for decades.
Today I took a class on drawing birds taught by John Muir Laws (in person, he goes by Jack) in Inverness, CA. Jack is a great teacher. I don’t have special talent, but after today I felt a strong sense of accomplishment. Here’s one of the drawings I did today.
