Wild flowers

Here’s another peek inside my sketchbook. I’m working in my Moleskine journal with the lightweight paper that is better suited to dry media. So I used a black brush pen and a Micro pen to do the initial drawing. Then added color using Neocolor II water based crayons. Once completed, I went over it with a slightly wet brush to blend the color a bit. Oh yeah, the background texture was done by lightly spraying ink through a stencil. I’m really enjoying working in this way on a daily basis, or as close to it as possible. Hope you like seeing what I’m up to.

  1. DORI! Thank you for the long thoughtful comment you left me. It’s very interesting that you get to be a part time parent. It’s love and it’s duty and it’s something to invest in that will come back to you in a very good way. I’m sure that you are a wonderful friend to her. Now I miss you.

    I like the look of this pretty blog and the sketching you’re doing is so fun. Thanks for getting me over here my friend!

  2. Hi Dori. I am enjoying the colors and drawings on your blog. You and I are both from Oakland and we are both enjoying Liz Steele’s Foundations Class. I look forward to getting to know you and perhaps sketching together. A group of friends from Danny Gregory’s SketchbookSkool try to meet at least once a month.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I read and appreciate every comment and will answer any questions I can.
