Sketches - January Second Week

I used green and purple for this plant sketch. Had great fun drawing these big blocks of color. They make me happy.

Another weird eye. Mixed media. Big mix actually. There is pencil, watercolors, black and white ink on this tiny drawing.

Made some experiments with dry leaves and watercolors. I had this idea from the autumn so I picked up some beautiful leaves and let them dry. Drew on them with the purple I had mixed. Put the leaf on the paper where it left some beautiful spots. Then added some black ink for the veins. Painted the background. Looked at it and saw that I just had to add more color so I did.

This is just a random imaginary plant. Drew it with watercolor pencil and watercolor paint. Underdeveloped, especially on the top. I like the green leaves, though.


Here's some watermelon. I miss summer a lot. I accidentally made a color which reminded me of watermelon so I drew the slice. It was on a big sheet of paper where my little daughter scribbled. So I cut it and placed it on a sheet which I had painted in this blue color. Nice color combo, I thought.

Finally, some warm colors in the cold winter days. Snow is falling right now here so I needed some yellow and orange. Added splashes of blue to freshen it a little. Drew this abstract leaves pattern in Paper by Fifty Three.

Strange hair and swirls for Illustration Friday

For a long time I wanted to participate in Illustration Friday's topic of the week. And week after week I didn't do it. Not this time, though. Strange haircut, cold colors and flowers - here is my illustration for "swirls":

Sketches - January First Week

Watercolor sketch of a girl with flowers coming out of her colorful h. In progress. Let's see if I will finish it and when.

An abstract plant. Messy doodle. I wanted it to be such.


Drew this pepper plant in my Sketches app. I love the watercolor tool there. It is a lovely tiny plant grown by my mother-in-law. But the time I write this, there is another red pepper growing on it. :)
