9 x 12 inch Favorite Feather Doodle

I sketched the outline of a feather and divided off sections for doodling. I’ve been trying some new patterns and having a lot of fun. I worked on this feather a few evenings while relaxing and watching television.Β This doodle makes me happy, I think I will frame this one. ❀

Inktober sketching

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!  😊

Poppy ink sketch

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.

Ink tree sketch

9 x 12 inchΒ  – 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.

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. πŸ’—

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™‚

Floral ink sketch

July Floral – 9 x 12 inch Canson Mix Media sketch book

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.

Blooms and Vines sketch

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.

Eucalyptus leaves

A simple painting of Eucalyptus leaves today.

Calm and soothing greens and blues.

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

Phthalo Blue
Cascade Green
Buff Titanium

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. πŸ™‚ 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.
