Product Description

A step-by-step technique book for creating beautiful imagery and journals inspired by the natural world.

Nature has been inspiring artists of all ages since the dawn of history, however, most books on nature journaling focus exclusively on drawing and watercolor painting, and therefore are intimidating or irrelevant to artists who don't feel confident in their drawing or painting skills.

This book offers artists and crafters a wide range of experimental techniques for creating beautiful nature journals that primarily use imagery and themes from the natural world, but go way beyond mere drawing and painting. Creative twists on leaf rubbings, plant pressings, non-traditional printmaking, using patina solutions on brass or copper mesh, colorful photo manipulations, layering techniques, and clever ways of incorporating three-dimensional natural objects are just a few of the techniques that are explored.

  • Inspirational writings, thematic sidebars, and related conceptual exercises all help readers create artwork that will resonate on a deeper personal level
