Floral ink sketching

A little look into my sketchbook today to see a few recent florals that I’ve been working on.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’š

floral ink sketch

A little practice trying to compose a pleasing floral design.

Some elements are simple while others are more detailed.

 

flowers and leaves ink sketch

In this sketch, I tried to add more variation in the size and shape of the flowers and leaves.

Tucking elements behind one another was like putting together a puzzle. Including a few peekaboo flowers here and there was really good practice. 🌸

 

floral ink sketch

I started this sketch building from the center with flowers and working my way out. Then I filled in the white space with vines and leaves to balance things out. I always like having a few vines at the top waving hello.

I really like this one, it makes me happy.Β πŸ’š

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Neon garden sketch

I have a bright floral sketch to share with you today.

Happy Thursday, friends!Β  πŸ’š

 

tombow brush pens

I recently purchased a set of Tombow dual brush pen markers and have been having fun playing with them. These bright citrus colors grabbed my attention.

I just love how bright and intense they are. There’s nothing shy about these markers. πŸ˜€

 

bright floral sketch

Neon Garden – 9 x 12 inch bee mixed media sketchbook

I started with the brush pens first to sketch out the flowers. These flowers seem to be my go to lately. They keep following me around and showing up in many of my pieces.

On top of the bright colors, I used a micron pen to build upon the sketch. I really like the combination of both here. Overlapping and drawing outside the colors is a fun way to create. I think it adds movement and more interest.

Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, sprinkle kindness all around and shine on!

Peachy Floral ink doodle

Another watercolor and ink doodle to share with you today.

Happy Thursday, friends! πŸ’—

Peach floral watercolor underpainting

I started with a floral watercolor underpainting.

Colors used:Β 
Peachy pink (Quinacridone rose + Yellow ochre)
Cobalt teal blue
Prussian blue
Sap green

 

Peachy floral patterns ink and watercolor

Using a micron pen I added floral doodles on top of my painting. I also added a cute little butterfly.Β Β πŸ¦‹πŸ˜ŠΒ  To finish things off I used a white gel pen to add some fun polka dots.

This style is a bit wild and loud. I like that my doodles are spontaneous, but it’s easy to end up with too much noise on the page. I really need to work on that…but I love creating this way.

I will be taking a little blogging break and will be back in a week or so.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on! πŸ’š

A little bit of this and that

Today I have a little bit of this and that to share with you.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’—

sweet little chick sketch

To start off, I have this little cutie from my sketchbook.Β  I have to say, trying to sketch “cute” took more than a few tries.

 

ink doodle pattern practice in circles

A little doodle pattern practice. Starting with a bunch of circles on the page and then filling them in with different patterns.

It’s a great way to try out new doodle patterns to see what you like and what needs more practice.

This was a fun exercise from a doodling class I took on Skillshare a few months ago.

 

Ink sketch - floral

I really like this combination of a sketch with a simple doodle pattern here and there. It’s light and happy.

I used to be caught up in thinking that every sketch had to be realistic and have a lot of detail. I’m finding happiness now without all of that and this sketch is a good reminder.

 

spring bouquet floral watercolor

Lastly, a Spring bouquet. I thought this post could use a splash of color and this painting from last month seemed like the right choice.

I hope you enjoy seeing my work and are inspired to do more of what you love.

Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, sprinkle kindness all around!Β  πŸ’š

Thinking of Spring

A little floral painting for you today as I’m thinking of Spring.

Happy Thursday friends! 😊

spring blooms watercolor

I love the combination of pinks and greens together in this painting. πŸ’—

Supplies used
watercolor paper 140 lb.
watercolor brushes, round 12, liner 2, and dagger 1/4″

Watercolors
Daniel Smith:Β  green gold, permanent green, quinacridone magenta, quinacridone rose, and yellow ochre
Winsor & Newton: cerulean blue

Using the wet on wet technique, I painted shapes in clean water first then dropped in wet paint. The dagger brush was used to make some nice leaf shapes. I left white space on many leaves and didn’t fuss with the shapes.

Tips
–Β  Allowing the paint to mix and mingle on the paper creates some nice results.
–Β  Keep a tissue on hand for those times when you drop too much water on your paper.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Pink floral watercolor & ink

A little more fun with ink and watercolor for you today. This style combines my love of painting with doodle sketching.

Happy Sunday! 😊

pink watercolor underpainting

It starts with a loose watercolor under painting. Big pink flowers and playful leaf shapes.

It doesn’t look like much at this point. The details are saved for the ink work to come.

 

pink party watercolor and ink painting

Pink Party – 12 x 18 inch

For my doodle sketching I used Micron pens .08, .05, and .03 sizes. For a little added sparkle, I used a white gel pen.

I’m always impressed with the difference that a little ink and detail can make. It really wakes up the painting and brings things to life. This one has a lot going on. I love the movement and fun little bits that are scattered everywhere.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Happy Thursday, friends! 😊

Summer Bliss – 12 x 18 inch watercolor and ink

Another practice with big loose floral shapes and some fun ink doodles on top.

The watercolor base served as the inspiration for my ink sketching. My goal was to vary the size and shape of the ink doodles and to just have fun.

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 shine on!
