Inktober 2020 – here we go

October has arrived and so #Inktober2020 has begun. I will be trying to increase my sketching this month. Hopefully I will be able to sketch at least 30 minutes a day. I have a very busy month ahead but think this is a reasonable goal to set.

Happy Sunday, friends! 🧑

Inktober 2020 sketching - fish

A quick little underwater sketch with day 1 prompt, “fish”. It was fun to play with different patterns on the fish and have some of them only in partial view. I found myself counting and trying to find all of them later. I’m going to have to sketch a few more of these and maybe add some bright color… Just love how one idea leads to another.

and this sketch of flowers, no detail and no real plan. Just Pen to paper and letting things happen and not overthinking anything.

Ink leaves – pattern and color play sketch. I used both Sepia and Rust colored Micron pens for this one. (Sepia .01, .005, and Rust .05)

I will continue to play in my sketchbook this month and hope to have more to share sometime later. It’s a busy month ahead with my son getting married soon.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Art is for everyone, hope you join in on the #Inktober sketching fun.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

I’m on Instagram at @pattyanneart, follow along to see more of my work and whether I can ever pass the 450 followers mark 😁 (not sure it’s possible since it hasn’t really changed in the last year). It used to bother me but now I find it rather amusing.
