My scientist and observer skills serve me well, I've found, in trying to translate what I see in the natural world to paper, in the language of an artist, as my teacher, Robert Johnson, in a recent 4-day workshop described.
His work is wonderfully evocative of the natural world, extracting the essence of what he sees. It was a great workshop and helped me build a bit more confidence in describing my observations through an artistic medium, beyond photography.
Here were a couple of the watercolor drawings that I did!
