Last night I thought I'd see how my thumb is improving and got out my pen to start doodling. I started with the moon shape first followed by the lozenge shapes, and realised as usual my mind had opened up organic shapes, which just goes to show how much flowers are part of me. So I turned it into a sunflower, with different patterns in each petal and circles for the seeds. Then I decided to add colour and turned to my tin of Inktense pencils. I filled the shapes all dry to start with allowing the pen patterns to show through. Then I had the brainwave of using a wet brush over the background at the top leaving leaf and stalk shapes dry and created a feeling of distance. Wish I had done the same to the darker leaves at the bottom.
Anyway I am away from home until Sunday, so thought I'd post this before I left. Hope you enjoy it. Happy weekend everyone.
