Sketches from Nature

Photos and sketches done as part of  the online class (Alisa Burke's Ode to Nature) that I'm taking.

This class is so refreshing. Seeing more beauty in Nature than before. The kids are also enjoying collecting leaves and flowers with me. It is all the more fun to have them with me.

Thank you


  1. You are really steaming ahead with these! Your shading/colouring is wonderful.

  2. wow Susan, the last one is amazing. Love the colors. It is fall on your sketch book page ;-)

  3. WOW, look at you Susan!! LOVE LOVE THIS!! Fall and leaves are my FAVORITE!! I should try to paint leaves this fall too, yours are beautiful!! This would be fun to do with the kids, also good picture taking for PROJECT LIFE!! By the way did you see Becky Higgins new posts this week, she revealed the new styles for PL next year. THEY ARE GORGEOUS!! I especially love the first one called SEAFOAM!! Let me know if you saw them.

    I saw your comment about my collage picture. I do this thru Walgreens when ordering them, you have choices and one of them is collage prints, NOT COLLAGE POSTER and then it takes you step by step thru it. I could even get a 5x7 or 8 x10 which I have before. Just select which photos you want and if you want a title or not and what color background for it. This year is the first for me using this and I LOVE THEM!! Hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions about it.

    I realllly want to take this class, hoping sometime this year or next I will come back and take it. LOVE NATURE!! Enjoy the rest of your class and thanks for sharing it with us.
    Enjoy your week!
