Hello and Welcome to the Art of Nature Group!


If you would like to share your nature artwork, you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button at the bottom of this page.

If you would like some advice on a specific work-in-progress, you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button at the bottom of this page.


If you would like to share progress shots of your nature artwork in its various stages, that's great too!

Click here to learn how to upload images into your forum posts (which is important so that people can see your art within the post, rather than as an attachment link beneath your post).

Just a few simple guidelines:

  • Please keep all discussions relevant to portraying nature in all its many forms.
  • Be friendly and considerate in your posts.

Thanks for joining & have fun!
