Step by step botanical drawing

Hi everyone! Here’s your little mindfulness break – this time with a botanical drawing!  Follow along with me as I draw a violet just picked from my garden. I’ll start in pencil, then move into pen. I’ll talk you through my thought process for making a drawing from life or representational drawing. These are tools you can use to draw anything you want. You’ll also see how drawing can be a mindfulness practice.
