Sketching & LandArt


Just as my Moon Boots thought their time was up for another year, they were on and we were out ready to create, whatever the weather. The vibrant sulphur- yellow of the Witch Hazel caught my eye against the snow as I wandered by. I could feel their excitement as I took the time to admire their colourful display. I had to photograph and record them in my nature sketchbook. It’s these spring moments being out, walking and capturing them, whether through sketching, photography or writing, that are important, to ensure we acknowledge the change in the seasons.

The snow kept falling onto my sketchbook, which added  to the paint effect. Sometimes, you have to go with the weather and incorporate it in your drawing. It can leave its mark from the day. I quite like that, nature getting involved.


I also discovered giant icicles on the greenhouse, which was amazing. This made me excited, to make some LandArt. Making a creation with nature which can go back to nature is very inspiring. I couldn’t resist being a unicorn for a few moments, before making the icicles walk up the snow covered lawn.

The icicles finally made themselves into the Snow Queen’s crown from Narnia, so you can see how much fun I’ve had today. Did you get a chance to go out and create, whatever the weather?


Back in the warmth, I finished my nature sketch, layering the paint and adding Sakura black archival ink. A bright and colourful record  from my walk today.
