Enjoyed seeing your sketches. I like the pose you put that woman in. I haven't had any time much to draw and I'm itching too, but I know this week is going to be busy so not sure how much I'll get to do.

Those flowers are great...You can sure do a lot with a sharpie!!

These are really good sketches! Did you sketh with only the pen...or did you do pencil first? I'm afraid to not use pencil first...gotta be able to erase, ya know!

I sketched the woman in pencil and then did the Sharpie thing. Then eraced like crazy. I want to next do something without a pencil sketch... you know, to loosen things up.

The other two did not have a pencil sketch. I just used the Sharpie for the flower petals... rest is Tombow. The limb was done with the Tombow on its side.

With the heron, I used a gray Tombow and a blue Tombow on its side. The black is from the tip of the Tombow. Then I got a watercolor brush wet and went over it.

Oh CC, I always get excited when you post your art! Love the sketches of the woman. It's so amazing to me that a few simple lines can make such an impression!
Love the flowers too, but the bird is just too cool!!!
A friend just sent me a pad of postcard watercolor stock...anxious to try a few simple things like this...!

Great sketch of the woman! And the flower is perfect! I love the red! I don't understand all of your talk about "Tombow" but I know that I like what I see! That heron is awesome!
