Any of these prompts might start something in motion, even just as reminders for sketchbooks or just for a moment of simple joy in nature.
When you sit down to focus, there are many ways to record your moment:
Mini landscapes, thoughtful contour line drawings (one hand or both!), gesture sketches, simple diagrams, memory doodles with just key features, quick colour palette studies, mood paintings, field notes, and more . . .
Sometimes a prompt can just kickstart a process for daily nature drawing. Once you head out with a sketchbook, it could lead you to something completely different. It really is all about the process, following curiosity, noticing what you notice, just for you!
