In January I am focusing on value vs. hue.
This is the Horticulture teaching garden at Eagle Heights and one of my favorite places I get to spend time in as a student at UW Madison.
I've been long ignoring this blog because - woah - turns out taking science classes after a lifetime of studying art has been a bit of an adjustment.
20°F walks in the garden are nice for looking at plants too. In the summer they impress us with their colors. In the winter they impress us with their beautiful seeds!
I've been playing with a bullet journal for the last couple years on and off - keeping track of tasks, ideas, and making it all look very pretty. I love that its basically a way to be a graphic designer with pen and paper, which is different than my day job as a designer via computer. It just requires a little more planning. No Cmmd + Z.
I live in an urban setting but luckily for me my landlords have planted a ton of flowers in our tiny front "yard". I think its so they don't have to mow it. But its totally fine by me! We get to enjoy these very very sour strawberries. And right now there are iris', bleeding hearts, and a sea of lily of the valley about to bloom.
Spring has finally come to Wisconsin. Everything is green and I decided to take advantage of a day off and some beautiful weather to try out my watercolor pencils and colored pencils. I am really happy with how this sketch came out.
Things are in full swing at the community garden!
Everything has been planned and mostly planted! The top section is what I have planted in containers on my porch and the bottom is what my raised bed garden looks like. I'm SUPER excited about this upcoming year. I feel good about the variety of veggies I have this year!
Created at the Madison Greenhouse store on Williamson Street, I created a themed tiered terrarium based on different depths of the ocean with three varieties of Tillandsia (airplants).
