Green Sketching is a blend of different sketching approaches, including nature journaling, field sketching, botanical drawing, urban sketching and mindful drawing. It’s about sketching to connect with nature, in your own way, for your own wellbeing. It’s not about trying to create breathtaking wildlife art, evocative landscape paintings or exquisite nature journals (there’s unquestionably a time and place for creating beautiful artwork but it’s not the main aim of Green Sketching).
Although I somehow managed to condense my Green Sketching idea into a 15 minute TEDx talk, I’ve realised I also need something shorter to communicate exactly what Green Sketching is (and isn’t). So, inspired by the Urban Sketchers’ manifesto, I’ve drafted one for Green Sketching with the hope that it can help inspire a community of doodlers to see, sketch and take care of our beautiful world.
