Field sketching


Join me and others to observe and sketch the changing season around us. I will help you to start a journal that you can keep yearly for your observations of the natural world. We will walk and sketch at Mcintire Park in Charlottesville from 12:30-2:30 on March 15, April 19, and May 10th.

Add To Cart

You need to bring:

1. A journal. Page size should be around 6 x 9 (make it be a size that can easily travel with you!). If you want larger, that is fine. I also prefer Hot press (smooth paper) and heavy weight (140 is ideal but hard to come by). Not spiral bound. I think the softer journals are best since they can open flat.

Here are a few options:

(this is ok but is cold press although moleskine tends to be pretty smooth)

2. pencil (HB is fine)

3. Micron pen (size 01)

4. portable watercolor set (optional , but windsor newton or schminke are recommended)

5. water brush (Niji is good) or portable brush that can fold with a water container

6. outdoor gear - hat, sunscreen, bug spray, water, pop up chair, lunch
