Creatin' with Mother Nature: Effie Yeaw Nature Center
A really good friend of mine is majoring in Ecology, so of course she has to do a lot of field work and studies. This is what lead her to inviting me out on a field study this past weekend! I love being in nature and will definitely go enjoy it anytime I have the opportunity to do so, art supplies in tow! We headed to the local nature preserve, Effie Yeaw Nature Center, early in the morning to avoid the afternoon crowd of people, and started out on a little nature walk along one of the many trails that's at this particular preserve. After finding the perfect spot to stop and take in the sights, I created this watercolor while relaxing by the river. One way I like to incorporate nature into my works is by using the water from the river/ocean I'm painting near by for my paint water. Not something I've ever really shared with anyone other than my artist friend. So there's an exclusive for ya ;) lol.
I guess I wasn't the only one out doing art at the preserve! Caught a glimpse of this painter enjoying his craft and soaking up the scenery! This is the second time in 2 weeks I've seen an artist out and about in nature creating art! I guess the beauty of Spring is calling to all of us artists!
Live + Love Art!
