Sketchbook Project – Fir Cedar Lichen Moss

Fir Cedar Lichen MossPages Nineteen and Twenty:

The back of the page from the Fir bark rubbing caught lots of natural pigment and the paper was well textured when it dried, so I decided to leave it natural in the book.And I had gathered specimens of several types of lichen and some moss, so I decided to show how many elements featured in the book look naturally when found by the river, all in one photo collage. I found a spot that had the right type of moss I had printed. (Coming up in future pages soon.) Right beside it within arms reach I found a fir branch and cone and piece of cedar and some tiny cedar cones, and I dropped the branch with the different types of lichen all on one piece that I had found nearby on a walk. These items are all staples along the river and can be found easily any day of the year.
