Freehand Florals

When doing my bathroom upgrade last week, I ended up with 50 gallons of water in my basement.  No worries, it’s all dry now.  So, I’ve been in sort, toss and organize mode lately which has left me little time for drawing.

I did manage to work in my 8x5 moleskine while out and about.

I had a couple guidelines that I tried to follow:
  • Only Freehand Flowers
  • Outline heavy in Black at the round parts, making an exaggeration of the flower petals.
  • Outline again with primary flower color
  • Finished off each flower with another exaggerated Black outline flower petal.

I didn’t want to make the flowers too small, so I didn’t draw too many in the white space.  My plan was to add-on to the flowers that were already drawn in order to fill up the white space.

No real method to the colors here….just tried not to lump the same colors together.

Love the vibrancy of Markers!!  Who can agree?

Hi Nancy!! I have to laugh at your first I was going to say "no, no he doesn't" but then I remembered not too long ago while finishing up the Horse Racing Sketch that I was notified that things are falling apart around here....Yikes!! Yes...I get a bit immersed! Haha

Wow! The colors really jumped right out at me. Now I want to sit down and draw a bunch of flowers. You're always so inspiring to me.

PS - it's getting closer and closer to B-day time!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
