John Muir Laws: How to Draw Plants

This delightful webpage is for nature-lovers and art-lovers alike. John Muir Laws is an artist, naturalist, and educator who has authored a number of outdoor and drawing guides. On How to Draw Plants, a project Laws heads with support from the California Native Plant Society, visitors can learn how to sketch a variety of plants and flowers - a skill that enables nature enthusiasts to record new findings from a hike or camping trip. Visitors can develop their own sketching skills by downloading a number of PDF tutorials or by watching a series of demonstrative videos. Laws emphasizes that these materials are best used together, as the PDF tutorials provide templates that are discussed in the videos. As Laws notes, "drawing and sketching plants and nature is an excellent way to train yourself to observe more carefully."
