Painting A Toad In My Nature Journal

IMG_7019.jpg

My Calendar Of Firsts this week featured some of the things we saw on our ‘moon walk’ a few evenings ago; the Harvest Moon, a hunting owl, and a toad.

You can see me painting the toad 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
  • Ultra Marine (green shade)
  • Phtalo Blue
  • Indigo
  • Cadmium Yellow Light

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

The Harvest Moon

This week is Harvest Moon Week in Exploring Nature With Children. We have been doing some reading about the moon and Lunar eclipses, and watching the sky closely!

On Friday evening, we set off and walked through a local meadow.

What a treat we had! Bats galore, an owl, and a wee toad that Rose found

Then the star of the show!

When we first spotted the moon, it hung large and low in the sky, like a golden penny. Once we were home, and it was higher in the sky, it was a beautiful silver. I left my shutters open in the bedroom, as I am fortunate to be able to see the moon for most of the night from my window. It filled the room with light all night long.

Here is Rosie’s journal entry:
