It may be that I’m not meant to draw flowers, but I love them enough to be persistent. This first one was done with Tombow markers, which I find work well if you want to keep your painting loose.
This one was sketched with Derwent watercolor pencils and liquified, as was this next, which I sketched quickly over top of a pencil drawing, thinking I could get rid of that pencil smudge….which was not to be. Oh well. Onward. Of all of the flowers, I like this one the best. Smudge or no smudge.
I’m determined to be happy with my floral creations by the end of summer. You know, like a hundred drawings or paintings later. Hopefully this isn’t too unrealistic of a goal! We shall see.
Spring is opening up all of my pores and I can’t wait to get into the woods and breathe the trees in. Is anyone with me? The moss and damp grass and old leaves and twittering birds and … space to think and be. If work wasn’t so crazy, I’d have stolen half a dozen chances by now. Maybe by Sunday, I’ll have a chance to hit the trail. With sketchbook in tow! I can only hope. Gotta enjoy these gorgeous spring days while we have them. Carpe diem! Not a moment to waste!
Happy Friday! If I could draw from my imagination, I’d be *inserting image of dancing birdie tail feathers here*. Have a great weekend, everybody! Ciao for now.
