Jude Siegel

I am taking a Nature Journaling class from Jude Siegel at the Multnomah Arts Center. I'm learning pen & ink techniques, and watercolor methods.

Jude is a good teacher, as she understands how squeamish adults are about being beginners. Children are used to learning; adults are often experts, and therefore find it disconcerting. (At least this is true in the art classes I've taken. )

If you live too far away to take a class from Jude, her book is an excellent introduction to Nature Journaling. She sets out her method in easy-to-understand steps, explains how to choose and buy paper, paint & brushes, how to set up your palette and make a palette map.

The book explains how to draw and paint the oceans, coastlines, islands, rivers, mountains & deserts of the Pacific Northest, and the illustrations are Jude Siegel's own vibrant drawings and paintings.
