Inktober and Mini Landscapes

Today I have a few more #Inktober sketches to share as well as a few mini landscapes.

Hope your day is wonderful! ๐Ÿ’š

Potted Plant Ink Sketch

I really enjoy sketching potted plants. For this sketch I used a few micron pens. I have a variety of sizes and colors in my collection. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I decided to use sepia and burnt orange colors for this one.

Botanical brush pen sketch


This sketch I started with a few light pencil marks as a guide for the leaves and vines. It was fun to play and see what kind of shapes I could make with the pen.

When I attempted to remove the pencil markings with an eraser things started to go a little sidewaysโ€ฆ the ink smeared on me. Oh well thatโ€™s how it goes sometimes.

Five minute landscape practice


I worked on a few more mini landscapes in my 5 x 7 inch sketchbook. This one above was a quick five minute painting. I love the freshness you can achieve with when thereโ€™s no time for fussing.

I spent a few more minutes on this mini. These little landscapes are a nice warm up and a great way to build painting skills. I hope theses little paintings also lead to new ideas. I’m thinking about filling an entire sketchbook with more of these quick paintings.

I hope you are inspired to create art and have fun. Until next time, share a smile and shine on.

  1. Lovely work Patty Anne, I especially like your potted plant and the way you used colored micro liners, I need to try that! I started the inktober challenge but only did a handful of the prompts, I need to do much better with daily drawing and painting!
