Sketch for Dawn 1

These past few months, I have done so little drawing!  The summer really steals away most of my creativity, but now that the leaves are falling from the trees and the nights are growing so long, I feel like I can sit and be patient and draw.  The colder weather just forces me to slow down, which I really need to draw.  I have only started a little bit but hope to do much, much more.  My favourite things to draw are things from the natural world and to simply copy out paintings or illustrations that I love.  I’ve had such a complex relationship over the years with drawing but I finally feel free to just indulge in what I really like to make and not worry about perfection or judgement.

Here are a few of my sketches from October.  Now on to a new Moon, new month, new art ❤

  1. I saw this on instagram and had to click over to see all your images (and now am subscribed to your lovely blog!). These are amazing. I particularly like your watercolor and ink leaf drawing and your dying sunflower. I recently returned to ‘pencil and paper’ after an 8 year hiatus (job demands) and am really enjoying sketching again — I, too, get almost all my inspiration from nature! Thanks for the share and for the inspiration!


    1. Hi Rachel, Thank you kindly :)! I know exactly what you mean about the hiatus from drawing. It’s take awhile I find to realize that it’s still so worthwhile to create art despite not being in it professionally and that is simply takes patience and really being forgiving with yourself. I checked out your blog too and love your photography 🙂 Can’t wait for new posts, I read A LOT as well and was on a path to becoming a librarian (I have my MLIS) but things change so easily.


  2. All these drawings are so good really… I know that sometimes, it can be hard to not be too judgmental toward ourselves but you should definitely keep on drawing 😉

  3. Your drawings are beautiful! I really admire you for putting away those thoughts on what the result will be like, and just enjoy the process. That is so important. And the look lovely!
