Floral Sketching

A little ink sketching today. Having fun with flowers and vines.

Happy Sunday!

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.Β  I catch myself looking at them and saying, wow I did that! πŸ™‚

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.

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.
