Over the past few months, I (Sophia) have found a new appreciation for nature. Lately, I have been going for walks along a wooded trail near my house. Being able to immerse myself in a place that is isolated from the business of the world is a refreshing change. Even hearing the sound of birds chirping and the wind as it blows through the trees are some of the small things for which I am grateful to experience.
Chris Macleod has been drawing wildlife using chalk pastel for about 10 years, and loves to mimic the beauty of nature onto paper in a realistic way.
During quarantine, Chris has been increasing the amount of drawings of wildlife and backyard animals, all in the medium of chalk pastel.
“COVID has increased the amount of time I’ve been able to get out and explore nature and watch wildlife, so I’m hoping to inspire others to do the same with my drawings.”
