Drawing is a way of expressing one's feelings and this may be in any form. It is a way to let out the feelings that are lying dormant in one's heart and mind.

Drawings can be indicative of what is going on inside. However, some people are natural at drawing while others struggle to portray their feelings on paper through drawings. While drawing is a skill that many of us are in born with, there are many that struggle and have to learn this skill.

Nature is not only around us but somewhere deep inside us as well. We are also a part of nature as we depend upon the earth that sustains life, not just human, but plant and animal life as well. Nature drawings can be based on plant life, flowers, plant, trees or on animals, anatomy, cells, fossils, evolution, environment, weather and so many other things.

Each of these themes can be further subdivided to produce an art form based on nature

Nature drawings help us visualize the beautiful world around us and open up the beauty and intricacy of this world. Artists have always tried to portray the simplistic side of nature through their drawings. While many people find it easy to capture nature in their drawings, others find it very difficult to draw leaves, trees and animals.
