Sketchy Sketches -- YEAH




Although work has been harried with long hours, I managed to squeeze in these sketches of flowers blooming around me.

I really LOVE that they look like the sketchy-sketches I've been trying to achieve -- a bit of pencil and/or pen, and a light watercolor wash.

Now to keep practicing so I can continue learning how to do this better!

Lin; I absolutely LOVE these flower drawings! They are so fresh and vibrant, like they're really strutting their beauty. This style of drawing is really becoming "your" style and that's so nice to see.
Beautiful, just simply beautiful...

Lovely little sketches Lin. All the images are very recognizable and fun. It's great that you recognize the value of these kind of sketches.

I like these sketches -- sort of a nature journal feel to them!

Great sketches, Lin, and you have such a delightful account of your days in all these pages. Isn't it cute how cats sit with us while we sketch?
