Art Journal: Floral Doodles


Seemed like these next two pages were so hard to photograph because of how bright and rich the reds were on the page. The light kept bouncing off of them and showing a light flare.

In my art journal, I like to paint some of the pages with acrylic and then move on to something else within the sketchbook. There are several things started but not very many are complete. I think it is important to know that you don’t HAVE to get a page done in one night. It could be better for your sanity to move from one spread to another to keep yourself fresh. Especially if you are struggling and are beginning to dislike what you are working on.

I had a lot of fun on this first page even though it is a bit hard to see the Chrysanthemum-like flowers. I had contemplated whether I should go back and darken up some of the lines, but it could make a spectacular background for maybe some digital artwork. Otherwise, I was getting a kick out of drawing the half circles all over the page.

 

This second page did not turn out the way I wanted it to, but I was trying to treat the page differently. My mind kept thinking about Dr. Seuss and what flowers in the garden of his mind might look like. Even though I am not happy with it, I am going to leave it alone for now. 🙂

  1. If you dont mind, exactly where do you host your webpage? I am shopping for a good quality host and your webpage appears to be quick and up most the time

  2. Hello, news!

    I actually created my art blog with http://www.wordpress.com and didn’t pay for a host at all. You can pay for a premium website from wordpress.org, but I wanted something that was free. I really need to post up some more blog posts, but I have been so busy lately that I don’t want to be on the computer once I am home. Hope my answer will help you!
