Painting Hawthorne Berries In My Nature Journal

This week I sketched some Hawthorne berries, a Sycamore leaf, and the full, Hunters’ Moon. The hedgerows are bursting with Hawthorne berries right now; the landscapes are abundant in such bright, beautiful colours.

  1. Love your idea, I’m totally going to start my own nature diary! I wondered where you got your watercolour paint case from?

    1. Hello Emma. I am thrilled that you are planning to start your own journal.
      MY watercolour box is a Schmincke, with my own paints added. I am sorry, I do not remember from where I purchased it.
