Painting Rose Hips In My Nature Journal

img_7362

My Calendar Of Firsts this week featured the Rose Hips that were in abundance on our Autumnal equinox walk, and the beautiful Garden Spider that has been building her web over my living room window for the past couple of weeks!

What a joy it has been to watch her each day.

You can see me painting the Hips in this week’s video.

The supplies I used:

Moleskine diary

Fountain Pen with waterproof ink

Da Vinci 1503 size 8 watercolour brush

Watercolours:

  • Quinacridone Gold
  • Cadmium Red
  • Quinacridone Magenta
  • Winsor Orange
  • Cadmium Yellow Light
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Ultra Marine (green shade)
  • Indigo
  • Raw Sienna

This is  just a short video to share how I work. I would love to hear how you create.

Do come over to the private FaceBook group for families working with their children to encourage one another in our journaling pursuits. It would be lovely to see you there.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing! We, too, have been watching a Garden Spider (you commented on my video of her on the AmblesideOnline group). Do you snap a photo of the items you sketch and then paint?
