Desk Rose (digital art)

Practicing with some workflow concepts—changing from paper to digital. I made a simple drawing of a rose and some sage leaves that I had on my desk. I liked the layout and the composition. I kept wanting to add more, but I made myself stop, realizing it was just enough.

I was looking through some photo albums a few days ago, and spotted this lovely picture of a dark purple wild iris.

Using the new Cintiq I was given, I decided to try to draw it. Even though there are artistic liberties in this picture, I like it!

The start of the image, working in the major color groups.

And the end of the image for now, with color groups filled in, as artistic and free as I believe is effective. You will note that the background is filled in with more visually interesting bright spots of color, too.

Scrapbook Flower Design – Digital

Feeling a bit whimsical today, and missing a friend, I decided to make a small illustration featuring some hand-drawn, simple line art flowers. Sketchbook Pro has a great pattern and line-mirroring ability which I had yet to play with. The result is this image, based on my original idea of mimicking scrapbook paper.

Here is the image with original black and white flowers.

ABOUT THIS PICTURE

Digital image. It’s February, but Spring is coming early this year to California! This sweet little poppy was along a walkway at the marina I live. I’ve seen many poppies along busy roadways, but never one so close. So, I took its picture. Such pretty flowers — and the State Flower of California.
