There are so many wonderful things to draw and paint at present. .
This season is spectacular.
Here is a small watercolour and one such example from my Moleskine sketchbook that is some form of nature diary and personal, visual record of my heart journey.
Whenever I feel or experience emotional pain or joy , I have always painted. The heart that hurts is the heart that heals.
I become lost in a leaf. If I clasp it's stalk and I'll blow away.
This was an exquisite, tiny world.
A micro environment is a small-scale habitat of particular plants and organisms. Every habitat includes large numbers of microhabitats with react subtly to different exposures to light, humidity, temperature, air movement.. The lichens that grow on the north face of a boulder are different to those that grow on the south face, from those on the level top and those that grow on the ground nearby; to the mosses growing in the grooves of trees .
Nestled amongst these miniscule "forests" are the microfauna too.
These little world's are so crucial to our survival. A dry stone wall, a hedgerow or a fallen tree and whose contribution to supporting the ecology of our planet is vital.
It really does sweat the small stuff and you have got to love it ..
Have a lovely weekend - whatever you are doing.
