I have a few new pages from my sketchbook to share with you today, inspired by the nature right outside my doors.
I’m always picking things up when we’re out and about, in the backyard or on the trails, things like pine cones, wildflowers, even weeds that look pretty and interesting to draw.
I rearranged the composition on my sketchbook page, just for the challenge. Man, I love how page turned out! It makes me want to do more compositions like this. I think it’s because I’m a nature lover, so I’m passionate about this subject matter. And it’s good drawing practice for me, which I’m always trying to find more time to do.
Thanks for stopping by!

You are a really good artist! Those would look nice on fabric! 🙂
Thank you SO much, Ivy! I really appreciate that. That is exactly my goal with many of these sketchbook pages.
love the flowers!
They pop right out of the page! Sweet:)
I agree with you. This is great! I particularly like the blue spruce and the queen Anne’s lace.
You are so good, and just getting better all the time. Did you use watercolors or watercolor markers on those flowers?
Thanks so much Shelly! I really appreciate that! I keep on practicing drawing and sketching because I want to be better at it. I used a mechanical pencil (0.7 mm lead) to lay down a simple sketch, then watercolors, and then a fine black Sharpie. Pretty simple tools.
I agree with Shelly that you’re getting better all the time!
I love what you’ve done, you do such a great job on these!
Beautiful pages – they are both stunning. Love how the woodgrain background – you really do have a talent – can really see when you’ve loved a particular subject.
What beautiful pages. You just amaze me!
I am in love!!!!! I can just imagine that first piece of art in my home!!!!! I can’t believe how far you have come along, you certainly have a talent for this kind of thing. Keep on producing please.
As always, you’ve done well. Nice going! I wish I had your talent!
Love, love, love your art, Terri. In French I’d say that it’s “très frais” = very fresh. 🙂
