Welcome

Hello and Welcome to the Art of Nature Group!

 

If you would like to share your nature artwork, you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button at the bottom of this page.

If you would like some advice on a specific work-in-progress, you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button at the bottom of this page.

 

If you would like to share progress shots of your nature artwork in its various stages, that's great too!

Click here to learn how to upload images into your forum posts (which is important so that people can see your art within the post, rather than as an attachment link beneath your post).

Just a few simple guidelines:

  • Please keep all discussions relevant to portraying nature in all its many forms.
  • Be friendly and considerate in your posts.

Thanks for joining & have fun!

All of the painting are great.  I am so behind.  I did finally remember to get Mod Podge yesterday while I was out to stick my pages together in my journal as they are too thin.

These beautiful birds are called Bee Catchers and have arrived here from Africa. The locals say that once they arrive there will be no more rain until october. The birds balance on the phone wires and catch anything that flies by. They are amazingly fast and accurate.

      A very beautiful painting, truly a talented artist.  Most saleable.  Thank you for sharing. MB
