Hops Nature Journal Page

In our nature journaling class last week, we sat in a restaurant patio, basked in the sunshine, and drew hops. I love the Latin name for hops- humulus lupulus. Just as much fun is imprinting painted leaves onto the page. The leaf used for printing is added with clear contact paper in the left-hand corner. The juxtaposition of natural and geometric shapes adds interest. Happy Halloween everyone!

I like that name, too, and your sketch is lovely! Look forward to seeing more of your artwork at the show, Paula
