Learn about Nature Illustration

Winging it is great, and you can definitely just go ahead and do that!

However, it might help with your nature journaling if you pick up some tips about drawing plant and animal life.

If you really want to go all out, you can take this free Natural History Illustration course from EdX.

If you’re not interested in taking a whole course, there are lots of tutorials at How to Draw.

And, of course, you can always look through books at your local library – both those that are on the topic of nature illustration and nature journaling, and those that just have beautiful nature illustration.

Play around with your materials as you explore and see which ones you think you’ll use most in the field.
