Lately I've been doing quite a bit of painting and drawing in my sketchbooks and the subject matter has been almost exclusively flowers. Working in my sketchbooks has been very freeing. It doesn't turn out? It doesn't matter. Hopefully I at least learned something. But if it does end up being something I like and want to share or use, I consider it a bonus.
I've also been playing around with different ways of incorporating these flower arrangements into some cards and other digital patterns. I'll share some more of those projects here at some point, along with some of my other flower sketches. The flowers have been a fun way to play around with new colors and they help me to stay loose. I like to dive down into the details of things, but when painting flowers I try to work fast and stay as loose as possible. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. But it's a great exercise for me, so I plan to keep at it.
