I found an old holiday sketchbook. It transported me back to our countryside holiday a few years ago. The old sketchbook still had many pages crisp white so I added a horse drawn by Rafael. But without its rider, directing it. Somehow, for me, nature sketches are free from intruding and dominating humans.
My latest project is about studying Feng Shui. I decided to draw Feng Shui's 5 elements. For drawing the Water Element, I chose a lotuspond with a flowering lotus. For Fire Element, I drew red tulips with their petals mimicking flames. For Feng Shui's Wood Element is drew 3 wooden sticks, driftwood and old branches found in our local woodlands, as well as a wood cut through with visible growth marks. I need to draw Metal and Earth Element to complete this series.
Wishing you a lovely summer with loads of nature sketches.
