In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.
My theme for July is wildflowers and pollinators, so week 27 in my animal art series features a few butterflies I haven’t illustrated yet (there are so many!). For this page, I challenged myself again to do the illustrations with just watercolors and my tiny paintbrushes, no Micron black pens. Some of the pencil lines show through, which adds to the shading.
Can’t wait to turn this playful sketchbook page into fun new digital art! Happy drawing!
