Routes and Roots nature ride early morning #nature #greenspace #routes #64millionartists #phogography #cycling 'Nature is not in a hurry, yet everything is accomplished.’ Lao Tzu. With Autumn in full swing, change is in the air. The weather, the colours and the wildlife around us seem to be on the move, and each day sees a flurry of activity outside. This week, we would love you to have a go at mapping nature’s movements! Sit in a natural space, and map the journeys of the animals, birds, insects and natural objects moving and interacting around you. You could use lines and shapes to capture that particular moment in time. Observe the pace, direction and intention of the things moving around you. Where have they been, and where are they going? Who do they meet on the way? Find the full challenge here: http://ow.ly/EhEV30mDMMx . #NatureConnection #64MillionArtists #Nature #Autumn #move #change I took this photo on my morning walk last Tuesday for the #64millionartists prompt "a trees tall tale"...and I've been hesitant to post it ever since. . Why? Because I couldn't figure out how to caption it. . I talk with the trees every time I'm alone among them. On every one of my nature walks I have conversations with nature...just not the "usual" kinds of talks and conversations. . These talks don't involve an exchange of words. Instead it's more of a conversation of feelings...on a spiritual level. . I have no idea how to translate a spiritual conversation into words...and I know all of that sounds weird to those who don't share similar beliefs. . That's why I've hesitated to tell my trees tall tale. I'm unable to tell it...you just have to feel it... . #natureconnection #convoswithtrees #naturecalmsme #winterinautumn #themostwonderfultimeoftheyear #selfcare Day 316/365 Been doing lots of baking for my party! #celebration #bigbirthday Day 315/365 I had to sketch the beautiful Iranian ewer @vamuseum if only for its snake spout. If only I had a teapot like that ! Day 313/365 Frida Kahlo’s perfume bottle. I finally managed to get to see the amazing #FridaKahlo Exhibition @can useum this week. I took my sketchbook but it was a bit too busy to sketch so I bought some postcards. Shalimar was Frida’s favourite perfume and in her will be asked that all her belongings be put into her bathroom and the room be sealed up for 50 years. It was very poignant to see some of her personal objects- the perfume bottle still has traces of her perfume in it. #makingherselfup #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife This weeks challenge has been amazing!

For the next month, we’re going wild! We invite you to take part in a series of creative challenges set by the Bronze Oak Project who use art to bring us closer to nature. . From exploring your leafy surroundings to delving deep into our natural roots, we welcome you and your curious mind to join us on an exciting adventure. So, engage your inner explorer and come and play with us! Our trail begins by asking… What is nature? Where does it live and how can we find it? . Go on a noticing walk. Take a stroll outside and pay attention to the natural world around you. Your attention may at first be drawn to the obvious, but see if you can spot unexpected moments of beauty. Engage all of your senses. What everyday nature can you see, hear or smell? Are there shades of Autumn around you? Perhaps certain shapes, lines and textures draw your eye. Maybe there’s something to touch? Take a breath and enjoy the moment. . Find the full challenge on dothinkshare.com. . Share your experience; either in words, or you may like to capture a photo or do a drawing to illustrate what you found. You can use the hashtag #NatureConnection and #64MillionArtists and share with us. . If you complete all four challenges and the quiz, you will be entered into a draw to win a beautiful limited edition bronze acorn kindly gifted to us by the Bronze Oak Project!
