Inktober is a drawing challenge started by Mr. Jake Parker where artists from all over the world take part in working on an ink drawing each day for the month of October. I am participating this year by sketching what I love when time allows.
Hope you enjoy my little sketches this week.
Happy Thursday! 😊
6 x 9 inch – Poppy flower
I’ve been using fine tip pens and trying to keep a light touch when sketching flower petals. I think it is starting to get a little better.
6 x 9 inch Flowers and vines
9 x 12 inch Sunflower
A happy little flower inspired by a sunflower in my garden. 🌻
9 x 12 inch – Standing tall
Working on the leaves in this sketch was easier and more fun once I started to doodle and let go. I tried to be careful to leave enough white space and develop some areas more than others.
9 x 12 inch – Little birdie in a tea cup
All of my ink sketches are on mix media paper using Micron pens of various sizes. I like mix media paper because it is smooth and has a great surface for ink sketching. The other nice thing is that it can handle a little watercolor if I choose to add some color.
I hope you enjoy seeing my art and are inspired to do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along. Until next time, share a smile and spread kindness all around. 💗
