More practice for my online course on Nature Journaling. The idea here was to work with lines to show volume and form in a two dimensional medium.
This is another exercise from the online course, "Beginning a Nature Journal." The purpose here was to practice hatching and crosshatching to create three dimensional forms and to give a sense of volume. What I learned from this is avocados are a challenge to draw and have look right with just a fountain pen.
I signed up for an online course called, "Beginning a Nature Journal," taught by Jan Blencowe. This spread is for the first assignment to gather some things to draw from the garden or outside and do contour line drawings of them, add some text and create a frame around the drawing. I added some watercolor and a bit of stippling to add some detail, but both of those were outside the scope of the assignment.
