Spring Equinox 2018


Yesterday was the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.  The first day of spring, astronomically speaking.  I decided I’d do a little BuJo page about the equinox, and after spelunking through my memory, books and the world weird web, I pulled together some ideas about it, as well as a little illustration.

For the first time I can remember, I sketched out the flowers and leaves in pencil before colouring the shapes in.  Then I added outlines and details to the colour.  I think I got a bit heavy handed with the outlines, but it’s all learning for me, expanding my artistic ‘tool-box’.
