Single White Bloom

“Single White Bloom” is for the Flower a Day Project. The flower was painted in oils in my 4 x 4 sketchbook. There’s something personal and maybe even romantic about a single stem. I think I like them better than a bouquet not just for a painting but on my kitchen table as well. *All […]

Flower A Day

I’m enjoying my flower sketches before dinner. I’ll absolutely continue them. This sketch shows a house with a purple petal fence and a huge sunflower as a setting sun over a bronze colored house.

An Experiment With Crayola Markers

I had no idea I could use a basic crayola marker this way. All I did was draw a little of the picture then brush over it with a wet brush. Some of them I really liked but others I wish I’d done a few things differently. . . . . Copyright 2009-2010 @ Sundrip […]
