Happy Sunday Everyone!
Be sure to visit all the other great participants of Sunday Sketches over at Sophia's place!
Or if you are feeling sketchy, join us by posting your sketch, and linking it with dear Mr. Linky over at BlueChairDiary.
I've decided to start a flower catalog, much like the doodle directories many artists have produced, in order to keep track of the flowers I use in my pieces. I am always looking at past pictures to get ideas for flowers, and I thought this would be a great way to have a quick place to look for ideas.
Then I just started filling in squares with different flowers I have used before in my pictures...
I am planning on including lots of leaf and vine sketches also as I love to combine all of these elements in my work.
I got the idea for this from Eden who has made a wonderful doodle directory, but also from our dear Sophia, who has recently started sketching every day, just for fun, with no heavy expectations. I find this flower directory to be very relaxing, creative, and no pressure! I don't have to worry about ruining a piece I have spent hours on, this is just for fun!
Also I posted this below during the week, but wanted to be sure to share it with all of the Sunday sketchers as you have watched her evolve over a few weeks...
You can see the full post about her below.
Hope you are all having a wonderfully relaxing weekend, or if not, that you are enjoying each moment. In light of the tragic events unfolding in Japan right now, it reminds me how much we need to treasure the wonderful people in our lives, not the things, and not let even one day pass without thinking about how we can make this planet a better place for those less fortunate.
Hugs to you all and as always...
