Inktober sketching

Sunflower ink sketch

Inktober is a drawing challenge started by Mr. Jake Parker where artists from all over the world take part in working on an ink drawing each day for the month of October. I am participating this year by sketching what I love when time allows.

Hope you enjoy my little sketches this week.

Happy Thursday!  😊

Poppy ink sketch

6 x 9 inch – Poppy flower

I’ve been using fine tip pens and trying to keep a light touch when sketching flower petals. I think it is starting to get a little better.


Floral for inktober

6 x 9 inch Flowers and vines


Sunflower ink sketch

9 x 12 inch Sunflower

A happy little flower inspired by a sunflower in my garden. 🌻


Ink tree sketch

9 x 12 inchΒ  – Standing tall

Working on the leaves in this sketch was easier and more fun once I started to doodle and let go. I tried to be careful to leave enough white space and develop some areas more than others.

Birdie in a cup ink sketch

9 x 12 inch – Little birdie in a tea cup

All of my ink sketches are on mix media paper using Micron pens of various sizes. I like mix media paper because it is smooth and has a great surface for ink sketching. The other nice thing is that it can handle a little watercolor if I choose to add some color.

I hope you enjoy seeing my art and are inspired to do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along. Until next time, share a smile and spread kindness all around. πŸ’—

Happy Painting!

  1. That cute bird in a cup is my favorite!! He’s so fat, I love it! Hahaha.

    #inktober has been living up to the hype. I started following this artist on Instagram. I’m not sure what material she’s drawing on, but it brings out the ink so well, much like yours!!

    I think she’s @rowan_makes_art on Instagram and @RowanMakesArt on Twitter.

    In any case, I’ve been compiling a mental list of my favs and that chubby little bird is definitely at the top. Hahaha.
