jill bliss morning nature drawings

by Grace Bonney

After yesterday’s rain storm I was in desperate need of some cheering up. Thankfully Jill Bliss‘ next nature drawing popped into my inbox and I instantly felt a comforting reminder that even in rainy Portland things were warming up and the flowers were starting to come back.

Today Jill has this new drawing to share with us and explains how it began here:

“This spring, now that the rains have eased up a bit, everything is in bloom all at once here in portland! I took a break yesterday afternoon from working in my studio to get a latte at Stumptown and collect blooms for my Heath vase. They’re so pretty!”

There are still three more days to submit your own nature drawing in the comment section of any of Jill’s morning drawing posts and win a copy of Jill’s new book, The Drawing Nature Journal. Click here for more details. xo, grace
