I’ve been waiting…

I’ve been waiting for the Cosmos that I planted from seed to bloom. This week, it finally happened. I was pretty excited when I looked outside to see this beauty.

Happy Thursday! πŸ™‚

Naming artwork

A little flower practice using a 1/2 inch Flat angle brush.

Happy little petals your way today. πŸ™‚

Baby blue flowers

I’ve been trying to come up with more thoughtful names for my artwork. I am finding that naming artwork is challenging. This small 6 x 9 inch piece I named, Baby Blues.

I wonder what the best approach is when naming artwork.

Maybe asking a few questions would be helpful before selecting a name…

  • What do I see?Β  (this is my usual method, somewhat descriptive)
  • What do I feel when I look at this piece?
  • What did I feel when I created this piece?
  • Does this piece bring back a special memory?
  • Does this piece have a special meaning?

Then again, am I just overthinking the process?Β  Is it best to just go with your gut (or what comes to mind right away)?

Do you have a method that works well for you? I would love to hear how you choose a name.

Thank you for stopping by and following along. I hope you are inspired to create art and do what you love.

Until next time, be the light and shine on! ❀

Happy Painting!

Floral Sketching

A little ink sketching today. Having fun with flowers and vines.

Happy Sunday!

Since I started doodling a while back, I stopped worrying about making mistakes while sketching and just going with it. I think that has really helped me loosen up and sketch freely. I also try to keep in mind that not every sketch is going to work out and that is part of learning and growing.

I surprised myself with these ink florals. I just love how they turned out.Β  I catch myself looking at them and saying, wow I did that! πŸ™‚

Floral ink sketch

July Floral – 9 x 12 inch Canson Mix Media sketch book

For each of the flowers I started in the center and worked my way out. After dropping the flowers in place, I added the vines and leaves. I used a .03 Micron pen for the sketch and a .005 for the detail.

Blooms and Vines sketch

Another quick floral sketch just before adding detail.

I’ve been trying to add enough detail without going overboard. If I let myself go I will add too much and it will look a bit harsh.
