Flowers and Ink

Another small sketch with watercolor and random flowers….original is 4×6.

One of the splashes of paint reminded me of the pink lady orchids that I saw in the wild in New York many years ago. One of those unexpected gifts that Karma gives you….

Haphazard Flowers

I was on a Zoom this evening with Carla Sonheim and a few other artists. Carla had some flowers that she encouraged us to draw via blind contours and I randomly placed them around the page. We were encouraged to use whatever media we wanted. I used a Caran D’Ache Neocolor II black water-soluble crayon.

I then colored them in with watercolor and used ultramarine blue washed around them. I just played with the various mediums, adding paint pens and other media. Then I scanned it in and tweaked it some more on Procreate. I did this all while making homemade candy for Easter. It was quite full day.

And yep, I printed it out on a 4×6 postcard to mail to my mom. No kitties today, just flowers.
