Lara Call Gastinger sketchbook proposal.

Go outside and walk a bit, long enough to take in and record new surroundings. Enjoy the best-kept secret around — the ordinary, everyday landscape that touches any explorer with magic.
~ John R. Stilgoe

This is a project proposal to maintain a yearly field sketchbook of a garden, capturing changes in the landscape and plants of particular note.

This sketchbook is designed with visits (journal entries) occurring once a month (12 visits) or every season (4 visits). Each sketchbook entry will be painted on 11 x 14 inch watercolor paper with mixed media of pencil, pen, and watercolor.
