Thursday – a little ink sketching

I’ve been trying to spend more time playing in my sketchbook. Sometimes I start with a plan and other times I just go where the pen takes me. πŸ˜€

Happy Thursday, friends! πŸ’š

pretty floral with cross hatching

With this sketch I started with a few big flowers and then added some vines. I’m a big fan of peek a boo leaves and had to include a few of them as well.

I haven’t used cross hatching very much and decided to add a little in the center. I like how it pushed the flowers forward and made them pop.

 

leaves and patterns ink sketchj

More play with leaves this time using a sepia micron pen. I just love that warm color.

When I’m sketching with ink the best rule for me is to not stress over mistakes and not “fix” mistakes. Trying to fix mistakes only seems to make them stand out more. I seem to do a better job if I try to make deliberate stokes and then just go with the flow.

 

round patterns ink sketch

Layered circles with doodle patterns. Just having fun and not overthinking things.

Playing and experimenting is really what my sketchbook is all about.

 

garden ink sketch

One last page of garden inspired doodles for today.

I hope you enjoyed this little walk through my sketchbook.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
