Quick Roses

Just another quick one from my art journal. We had a couple of new little buds, one each on the red and pink bushes. So I decided to sketch them both in ink and go back in with my Cotman watercolor travel palette.


The other rose was my warm-up in Inktense pencil with a bit of watercolor paint added later. That ink definition adds so much!

Happy Thursday to all…..Anyone else looking forward to some fall-like temps?ย ย  Can’t wait. Peace.

  2. Here itยดs quite cold already, such a relieve!!! Love you inky roses, especially that both, ink and watercolor, look so light-handed and sketchy. That can only be reached with a lot of practice! Wonderful!!! ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘

    1. Awww thanks, Ann! I did promise myself better florals by end of summer! hehe I’m so glad you see the improvement. I have done lots of them now, mostly from what my husband grows. I guess I should have a fall goal! I think maybe it’ll be animals. I’d love to be able to do furry animals well. In ink and wc. A challenge, for sure. Do you have a fall goal? I’m glad it’s getting cool there!

      1. My main goals are getting better at painting water, shadowing in trees, and drapery. All incredibly hard to me… Started with a little with water now… But actually my fall goal is preparing stuff for christmas (like little illustrations for christmas cards), maybe Iยดll be able to sell some of it, who knows. That would be so cool! ๐Ÿ˜Š Love fall, canยดt wait to see the leaves turn yellow!!! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒฐ
