Nature Walk Art

The other day I went on a nature walk with Little I and collected a couple of different items I found on our walk.

When Little I went down for her nap I drew them out on a piece of paper with pen (not pencil because then I would have been too worried about mistakes!) and then used watercolor pencils and acrylic paint to paint my drawings.  It was a great way to create art without stressing out about figuring out what I wanted to paint.  If you ever feel like you are "art blocked" this is an easy drawing and painting exercise.

Lay out your objects in front of you to draw.

Use pen so you don't focus on erasing mistakes.  Have fun and don't stress!

Queen Ann's Lace is my favorite!
