Purple pencil sketches of abstract plants and flowers. I drew the first two with my favorite Derwent pencil. And for the last one, which is more detailed, used a watercolor pencil from Staedtler, another one of my favorites. I love to create form through shading.
Autumn leaves drawings from this year’s fall season. Drawn in ink and watercolor. You can also see them at my Instagram. There was a challenge at @leavestodraw by Anika Starmer for drawing particular leaves which she had photographed. These are my sketches. Turned some of them into art prints, will soon add them to the site.
You can see all of these sketches along with my recent ones at my Instagram.
Here’s a digital illustration of an eye with ants coming out of it for Illustration Friday’s topic “Nightmare”:
Here are some of the ink sketches which I drew recently:
Watercolor sketches and art which I recently uploaded to Instagram. I continue to explore watercolor art and I love it more and more. Up to now I’ve created mostly digital artworks. Now I’m thinking of making art prints out of my traditional drawings, too.
Recently I started to sketch with watercolors. I had wanted to try this since ever but I was somehow intimidated by the medium. Watched some cool online classes at Skillshare, gathered courage and started. Had some watercolor pencils, tried them first. The snowflake and the red flowers below are drawn with them. I like how intense the colors become when adding a little water to a densely shaded area. Then found a watercolor set which had remained from the last school year of my kids and some Ikea brushes. Continued with them. Here are the recent sketches:
Drawing with aquarelle turned out to be great fun. And my biggest problem seems to be not working with the paint itself but drawing on watercolor paper. I am afraid of using high quality paper because I will ruin it. Plus, there is some charm in the wrinkled paper. Just recently I started to overcome this fear by getting the cheapest heavy paper I could find and just forcing myself to draw on it. Still using children’s watercolor paints and brushes, though. Well, I’m happier this way for now. 🙂
