HEATHER A. WALLIS MURPHY
Plein Air Journaling

June 6-7-8
All Levels

$275

Join veteran wildlife biologist and artist Heather A. Wallis Murphy in the out-of-doors with pen, pencil, watercolors, binoculars and hand lenses to study the “extraordinary” in the ordinary of the beautiful Skagit Valley  From blind contour drawings of birds on the wing, pencil sketches of botanicals and watercolor paintings of objects in nature to contemplative writing of field notes, Heather will teach you the basics on how to document what you see in an intimate pictorial format. Our first day will be spent in and around the gardens of the Skagit Valley.  Day two will be a trip to the beach. Our last day will be spent exploring and documenting the quaint town of La Conner. This is not just a workshop for the ‘artists or naturalist’, but is an experience open to all who seek a more creative relationship with nature.

Heather A. Wallis Murphy is a retired U.S. Forest service wildlife biologist with more than 30 years of forestry and wildlife experience in the Pacific Northwest. She is also a watercolorist and runs her own naturalist note card and journaling business from her studio in Leavenworth, WA.  In 2005, Heather was selected to represent wildlife and art at the Smithsonian Institution’s Folklife Festival in Washington D.C.
