Sketch dump – lots of flowers

Hello hello! It’s a rainy Tuesday here in the ol’ Boston area, but it’s supposed to get HOT today. I’m looking forward to it, actually, even if a lot of people’s idea of the worst weather ever is Hot and Humid. It’s just… we haven’t had rain in forever, and my tiny rooftop garden (which I want to post about!) needs some love!

Anyway,┬átime for a sketch dump! I draw nearly every day, probably about 6 days a week on average – I usually draw in the mornings before I go to my day job, which means I wake up really early. I actually felt weird about it for the longest time, like, maybe I’m doing it wrong? Aren’t artists all supposed to be night owls? Am I not a real artist because I’m a morning person? But you know what, it’s okay. Artists often work weird hours in general, whether it’s morning or night.

Anyway! A few sketches from last week!

Green and pink girl with flowers
Done with watercolor
Done in ink in my old Moleskine cahier. Moleskine paper is... really really bad, haha.

Watercolor painting - I was super inspired to do this one, so it only took a few hours to do, and most of that was waiting for the paint to dry!

  1. I absolutely love all of these sketches, especially the way you brought together such color balance with water colors in the first and third ones! The second one also speaks strongly to me: the darkness is encroaching on her, eyes closed, but what else can she see? Spoopy! I’ve been working on some poetry recently but, like you, perhaps I should try to write some each day. Thanks so much for your inspiring, thoughtful, and beautiful works with all of us!

  2. I love all the sketches! I like the girl with the green hair! I’m so jealous you’re able to wake up early, haha. I try every morning and fail miserably, even after setting three alarms LOL
