Ginseng in May – A Nature Sketch

I’m recording the process of my “Ginseng in May” sketch that I’m doing for the first Kingston, AR art show. And it’s the first art show I’ve ever entered. This sketch is the first I’ve ever done that took so long, lol, so this is a first on many levels.

Follow along at my Wild Ozark Nature Journal website:

Here’s how it started out:

At the Wild Ozark Nature Journal Blog I go into explanations of how, why and what I did. Here’s a link to all of the ginseng-related posts at this blog. Under the “Ginseng” tab on the menu at the top of this page, you’ll find other pages on ginseng that don’t show up as posts.
