I spend of lot of time hiking around different parts of Oregon. Though I enjoy the nature around me even without knowing the names of what I’m looking at, I decided it would be worthwhile to focus in on the flora of this great state for a week’s worth of Visual Vocabulary. I am not merely interested in being able to name what I see, but rather in taking the time to notice the differences in the structure of what I see. The theme for this week: Tree Leaves of Oregon.
The sketches seen here are part of a project called Visual Vocabulary. In addition to helping me build my own visual vocabulary, my hope is that these small sketches might serve as a resource for others who are new to visual note taking and are trying to develop their skills.
