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

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.
Watercolor added to this sketch brightened things up. The blending and variation of color in the leaves and stems worked well here. 🌿
I hope you are inspired to create art and do something fun!
I’ve always had a special place in my heart for daisies or any flower that resembles a daisy. 🙂
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)
I 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. I was just getting started painting on a regular basis, this was painting number #19. ❤
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.
Thank you for stopping by and following along. I hope you have a great week and find time to do something you love.
