I was waiting this morning while my husband underwent a procedure. So I took a long my sketchbook, Inktense pencils and a water pen.
This is a sketch of a Mountain Orchid from a photo my sister took while she was here. It’s also known as a lady slipper. I worked on this sketch for several days and had painted the center portion with white acrylic paint so that it would cover the background green. These are really cool flowers and I like how the sketch came out. I think it would be cool to try to felt one of these flowers in gigantic size compared to the real flowers.
Here’s the photo of the flower. I now see some details that I didn’t get into the sketch and the scanner didn’t catch all the shading I did on the white part of the flower.
Here’s the second sketch I worked on today. This was quite a complicated flower but once I got started it wasn’t that hard to recreate. I can never remember what these are called but I have them in my front flower beds. They spread like crazy and take over but the deer don’t eat them so that works for me. In case you’re wondering, my husband is doing well. Have a great weekend!
