Sketches - February First Week

Here are all my sketches from the first week of February 2017. First, I drew this cute burning fire character in my Paper app.

I also sketched this flower in ink. Then added watercolor and was surprised to see that my favorite black pen had water soluble ink. Anyway, my mistake had fun results.

Later, there was a big sale at my Society6 store which inspired me to draw this watercolor sketch of the 40% and some leaves around. To be honest, Just felt like drawing and this was the thing that came up on that day.

Finally, some abstract swirls which I drew in Procreate. Lots of purple, heh.

Sketches - January Fourth Week

Drew this watercolor sketch on one of January's topics -"plaid" for the challenge of Anika Starmer (Let's Make Patterns). Had a lot of fun layering the colors.

Drew this tiny sketch with fun and flowers in Procreate while my daughter was sleeping beside me. I am making a little animation from this image now. Will share it as soon as it is ready.

Watercolor hearts for Valentine's Day

This Valentine's Day I drew a watercolor heart for my husband and for each of my kids. Made a card with the big one. The three little ones I cut and gave to the girls. The older kids put them on the back of their phone cases. :)

Sketches - January Third Week

Hadn't drawn a snowflake in a while. Drew it very quickly with my favorite blue and pink watercolor paints. Winter is a big inspiration, especially with the heavy snowfalls recently.

Sketched some leaves, too. This is one of my favorite shapes. I love to draw it and fill it with whatever. This time I tested my new watercolor paints. I used my kids paints before. There is a great difference, indeed. The colors are very bright and I use a lot less paint for the same color intensity. This drawing was all about contrast in color and texture.

And, lastly, just a fun flower. I would call it fire flower if it existed. Had some fun with yellow in orange.

White Ink Drawings

My friends gave me this very cool white ink pen along with a sketchpad with black paper. They are so cool! So I sketched these abstract flowers, some snowflakes and two fat letters with decorative ornaments.
