Nature inspires me for its utter richness and randomness. Sprawling eclectic life form growing with what seems to be a will of its own. There’s a feeling of humility that comes from observing nature when you draw it. I never worry about being exact when I draw nature, what’s the point, I’ll take a photography if I want to be exact. Drawing this sort of subject is more about interpretation and feeling.
does that work?
