From the Sketchbook: More Poppies!

Last time I shared my drawings from my sketchbook, I was obsessed with drawing poppies.

(You can see them here.)

I’m still really into drawing them and wanted to share my recent sketchbook pages today!

And I have a mini video at the end, so keep scrolling down 🙂

These colors really make me happy.

Most of my poppy drawings are done with Micron pen and Sakura Koi brush pens!

Love this pink and magenta combo!

I also tried more cooler colors. This one with Micron pen, Koi pens, and white Gellyroll pen.

Darker blue poppies turned out pretty, too.

As promised, here is a very short poppy drawing video 🙂

 

And, if you want to learn how to draw these fun poppies, you’re in luck!

I recently made a video tutorial for Sakura of America, and this FREE video will be available on their YouTube channel soon!

I enjoyed creating the tutorial and suspect there will be many more in the future 🙂 I’ll keep you posted on when they’re gonna come out!

Hope you enjoy it! Talk to you soon.

Holiday Giveaway :: Pretty Desktop Wallpaper

Hello friends!

Camellia, Mixed Media

When this post goes out, I will be in Wisconsin spending time with my in-laws!  I’m not going to be posting my daily “Happiness is” drawings for a week because there is no internet (!) and the cell reception is really bad in the house we’re staying.  But I have pre-scheduled a couple of posts to hold you over!

Today I wanted to tell you how grateful I am to all of you who have been following and supporting my work!  It is hard to believe it’s been over 8 months since I started my daily drawing project about happiness!  Practice of noticing and acknowledging something that makes me happy every day has been really great, not to mention practicing art every day.  I also really enjoy hearing from you and knowing that my little happiness drawings are relatable to many of you 🙂

As a small gesture of my gratitude for your support, I’ve created a pretty desktop wallpaper with simple botanical motif!  Download my free desktop wallpaper here!

Ok, if you celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas to you!  I will be eating lots of food and hopefully playing in the snow!!

I will post another vacation post on Sunday 12/28.  Take care until then!

xoxo
