From Inside My Sketchbook

I've been playing in my sketchbook a little this week...I wanted to draw some abstract flowers, kind-of in the style of Alisa Burke, {I just adore her work & hope to take one of her online classes soon too!}. So I got out my pencil & started sketching the above thumbnails. Then I pulled out those WONDERFUL Caran D'ache colors & filled them in.
I discovered these fabulous water-color crayons while taking that Art of Wild Abandonment class I took recently. They are so great & give you so much more control over where your color goes than palette watercolors. I don't know if I am using them the proper "watercolorist" way, but I like the effects I got!

Here is what my thumbnails led me to...
12, 4x4 card to make a couple sets of note cards
 Here are some close ups of my favorites...

gotta have some poppies in there!
That's it for today!
Thanks for stopping by!
