Botanical Artists of Canada (BAC) Sketchbook Exchange

In September, I began participating in BAC’s first ever Sketchbook Exchange. Each exchange group has 10-12 participants. Starting with my own sketchbook, I complete a sketch each month and mail the sketchbook to the next participant. At the end of the exchange, my sketchbook will return to me, filled with botanical sketches from BAC members across the country. Here are my sketches for September – October – November. Each month I will post another sketch.

September – Stonecrop (crassulaceae)
October – Bur Oak (quercus macrocarpa)
November – Shumard Oak (quercus shumardii)
