A little ink sketching today. Having fun with flowers and vines.
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. I catch myself looking at them and saying, wow I did that! 🙂
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.
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.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along. Until next time, share a smile and spread kindness all around.
A floral doodle and my inkspiration photo for you today.
This post is rather quiet. The doodle, well… not so much.
Happy Thursday! 🙂
While looking for something fun to sketch, this lovely red flower caught my eye. I snapped the photo below with my phone while visiting Leu Gardens this spring. A nice flower to sketch with some interesting shapes.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love.
I have a fun ink and watercolor Tulip to share with you today.
Fellow blogger and talented artist, Jill Kuhn, recently posted a beautiful ink Tulip. I was inspired by Jill’s lovely art and decided to sketch a Tulip and give Zentangle a try. It was fun creating different designs and patterns all over the flower and leaves. I added a splash of watercolor at the end to brighten things up. I’m really happy with the end result. 🙂
