Slow and steady

As you might guess, my latest sketch is a turtle. Turtles are really active during the spring around here and since there’s been a steady snowstorm all day keeping me indoors I have really been wishing for warmer weather (or a vacation someplace tropical). When spring finally arrives watch out for our slow friends as they cross the road.

Cheers!

Tulips

Normally I work on white paper but I found some black paper in my supplies and thought I’d experiment. I chose tulips to continue with the flower theme I have been exploring.

Cheers!

Cherry Blossoms

The weather continues to be very cold with even colder temperatures predicted for later in the week. To keep myself from getting to sad about the weather I decided to continue sketching flowers and thinking of spring.

Cheers!

Colored Pencil

I was happily surprised with 2 large sketchbooks for Christmas so I thought I’d share the first pencil sketch I did. I was trying to achieve a more graphic look.
