Nature’s Textures


There’s just something about the textures of the natural world that always seems to evoke our sense of touch. For example, I would find it extremely difficult to walk past an old tree without running my fingers across its gnarled and rough bark. I captured this particular Autumn texture and confess that I ran my fingers over and across it before taking the shot. It felt marvellous. Natural textures have always held  a profound attraction for me.


About Don

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in the United Kingdom. I have a deep love for nature and open spaces and one of my great loves in life is sketching, particularly in pen and water colour and occasionally in pencil. I’m quite new at the art and I sketch mainly from photographs I’ve taken, but also enjoy outdoor sketching. My sketchbooks, although no great shakes, are important to me and I decided to create my blog in order to share some of their contents with those who may be interested.

    Sensational colouration Don – what is it, a Japanese Maple perhaps?

    Colors, shadow and textures are what I connect to most in nature. For others it might be smell and touch. … No matter what it is, when we can get it of heads and appreciate nature in all her forms, I know it is a good thing 💛

  4. I agree Don, and looking at this luscious tree, I would be definitely want to get closer to its rich texture.


  5. Wow, Don! This is autumn glory personified! I want to reach out and touch it, too!

    Stunning indeed! I would be reaching out and touching the leaves. Inviting.

    Beautiful Don. The color alone is arresting. It looks as if it would be soft as feathers! It does look like to be a Japanese Maple which never disappoints the eye in shape and color. Just lovely

    So very true, Don. It’s funny – I think nature provides us with as many intangible textures as it does of the touchy-feely kind 😉 You have captured this one perfectly, thanks for sharing!
