Hello and welcome! As you might know, I’ve started to dabble on drawing, and free hand water-coloring, along with my regular card making activities. I had posted some of what I had made in a previous post. This here is the next installment! 🙂
I have bought a A5 sized book for practicing by drawing and simple coloring – Brustro Artists’ Sketch Book. And all the art work featured in this post, are what I’ve drawn there. I find the book to be adequate for my practice as of now.
This one is inspired by Alex Siberia’s designs. She has got a ton of awesome digital images at her shop, and I found them really inspiring to draw. Of course, I am not commercializing mine, neither have I outright copied her art – this is my own style.
I drew the flowers using a pencil and used Uniball Fineliner pens to outline them – I do have pens of different thickness – 0.05, 0.1 and 0.3 – and I use them however I feel like. Once the outline was complete, I erased the pencil lines and colored the whole thing using Zig brush marker pens.
Of course, the paper is not think enough to handle the coloring. The color was showing through the page, but thankfully, the paper’s thickness was enough to not let anything bleed though to the next page. 🙂
And this one proves that the pages aren’t exactly meant for watercoloring!! 😀 I tried to get a look of illustration, but no..not meant to be!! I’ll attempt the next one over actual watercolor paper, and use this one for pens and my Zig markers… maybe pencils too, if I can manage it! 🙂
But I did looooveee those butterflies!! 😀
Some autumn/fall artwork, going along with the popular theme in the card-making world at this time! I tried drawing myself and some no-line coloring with the Zig brush markers. Loving the look of the marker’s colors on this one – a little more practice, and I think I’ll get a hang of it! 🙂
And back to only sketching! Its full of leaves this time. And I really wanted to try out drawing some Gingko leaves!! They are so pretty – I think if I use any color other then green for them, they would be mistaken for flower petals!! 😀
So, on this one, I tried to create texture by varying line thickness and density – but I don’t think I established it very well. But I did like the look of the leaves here! And all the dots accompanying it! 😀
I’ll join the Paint Party Friday: Week 31. What a wonderful platform to show off some artwork! Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting it!
Well, that’s it for now! I’ll hopefully make the next set soon!
Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
