Lovely Summer Flowers

Today I have a some summer flowers to share with you. All photos were taken with my iPhone. I love this time of year and always look forward to these pretty views in my yard.

June Daisies

Right outside my door in the evening. This just makes my heart sing!

Yellow Summer Lilies

Oh that golden yellow color. ๐Ÿ’›

Hello beautiful!

Summer Pink Lilies - iPhone photo

I was so excited when these pink beauties bloomed. I’m so glad I was able to enjoy them a few days and got a few nice photos when I did. I expected them to be around a while with all those buds waiting to open.

Unfortunately we had some visitors stop by and eat all of the pink lilies. Looks like I’m going to have to move them closer to the house. I think that will keep them safer from deer and other critters.

What’s blooming in your garden?

Until next time, share a smile and shine on.

More Inktober sketching

A few more sketches to share for #Inktober. It’s been a lot of fun, hope you enjoy!

Happy Sunday, friends!

Black-eyed Susans ink sketch

Sketching things that make me happy, like these flowers.

When sketching flowers it’s easiest for me to start in the middle and work my way out. I usually place a few light dots on the paper as a guide for the initial placement before putting down any heavy marks.


Duck ink sketch

A little duckie, simple and sweet…

For my birds, I usually need a light pencil sketch first in order to get the correct placement and shape of the head and eye.

This little guy makes me happy. ๐Ÿ’›


Birdie ink sketch

A little bird looking away

I think the light areas are just as important as the dark areas. For this little sketch, I kept the head darker and tried to keep the chest and underside soft and light.


Purple flowers ink and watercolor

Watercolor added to this sketch brightened things up. The blending and variation of color in the leaves and stems worked well here. ๐ŸŒฟ

I hope you are inspired to create art and do something fun!

Until next time, have a great week!

Happy Painting!

Pink Daisy watercolor

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for daisies or any flower that resembles a daisy. ๐Ÿ™‚

A happy little flower that just makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile as well.

Pink Daisy – painted on 6 x 9 inch bee watercolor paper (painting #748)

Pink Daisy in progress

Iย  snapped a photo part way through the painting process. Adding more darks and a bright background really wakes up this painting.

I am a big fan of pink and green together so I decided to splash on a bright green background.

As I was gathering my thoughts for this post, I remembered a little pink daisy that I painted back in 2015.ย  I was just getting started painting on a regular basis, this was painting number #19. โค

It is important for me to keep moving forward but it feels good to look back and see how far I’ve come. I hope it also provides inspiration for others that might want to give watercolor painting a try.

Inktober Fun

I’ve been joining in on the fun of #Inktober creating some ink drawings this week. I decided to work off prompt and draw what inspires me. I added watercolor to a few of them because it is fun and I just can’t resist.

I used my Platinum desk pen with fine nib as well as a cute little set of black Micron pens with various size tips. The Micron pens have a nice little carrying case that I just love. My drawings are all on Canson 7×10 inch Mix Media paper. This paper is smooth and great for ink drawing and it has a 98 lb weight and can handle a little watercolor just fine.

Below are a few of my ink drawings this week:

A simple pine branch in ink with a little bit of watercolor. I like this one a lot, it may become one of my Christmas Card designs this year.

Daisy in ink

My Daisy simply in ink. I liked this in black and white so I didn’t add any watercolor.

Simple Branch with leaves

A simple branch with leaves. This painting has just a touch of ink with Micron pens (size .03 and .01) and watercolor. There is nothing complicated about this one, and I really like that. Maybe that is why I find this one to be quite calm and soothing.
