I love the combination of a simple ink sketch with soft colors.

Sketched using a black Micron pen, size .03
I bought a set of black Micron pens with a wonderful travel case. It had room for additional pens and so… I filled it up. 🙂 I also managed to fit my mechanical pencil in the case as well.
I love having this little case next to me whenever I am sketching, everything I need is visible and right on hand. ❤ I’ve mentioned these pens in other posts and thought you might like to see what I’ve been using.
I like to think that I am painting myself happy. I hope you enjoy seeing my happy art and it inspires you create and do something you love.
Thank you for stopping by and following along. ❤ Until next time, share a smile and sprinkle kindness everywhere.
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’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.
