Last Inktober 2017 Sketches

A quick post today to share a few of my last sketches from #Inktober. I really enjoyed working in ink and challenging myself. I was very inspired by all of the amazing art shared by other artists online.

Butterflies in Watercolor

Just a quick post this week on butterflies. I’ve always loved butterflies and it makes me smile when I see one flutter by or land on a nearby flower. Their delicate wings have such beautiful colors and patterns that are all so interesting. I thought it would be fun to try and paint some butterflies this week.

I tried to keep things simple and loose (but sometimes that is easier said than done). Below are two of the paintings that I am happiest with. I think my favorite one is the bright blue butterfly. I really love Daniel Smith – Phthalo Blue!
