A peek at my watercolored field journals with tips on painting

In this video, I’m sharing examples from a few of my travel journals of birds and other wildlife observed and painted during my travels in Peru, Guatemala, Honduras and Borneo in 2017 and 2018. 

My goal with this video is to give encouragement to new nature sketchers and journalers by showing examples of my field paintings in all stages of ‘doneness’ and ‘quality’ along with painting tips you can use in your own journals.

On each page of my watercolor field journal, I share some facts about the species I am observing and the reasons behind my techniques that relate to conditions in the field and behavior of the wildlife.
