Poppies in my Sketchbook

I started on a new sketchbook recently. I painted quite a few background pages. That always helps me to get over looking at a white page and wondering what to do. The colored pages seem to give me ideas of what should be on them. So this first page needed some poppies.

Sketchbook - Poppies

I found a photo online that I used as inspiration and drew the poppies, outlined with black pen and painted with Inktense pencils. I love poppies and drawing flowers is always fun. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. That’s a great idea to start with a colored page. The poppies are wonderful. We don’t seem them here. Enjoy your weekend, too!

  2. Poppies are a joy to see and you’ve capture them so well, the golden yellow paper is a good choice, reminding me of summer wheat and barley fields where we have them in profusion.

  3. The poppies are lovely on that colour background.

    Colouring the page quickly to cover the white is an excellent starting point – it seems to take the fear away.

  4. Just stunning, they remind me of a Japanese print or maybe Art Deco. I adore the simplicity of poppies and there movement and you have captured them so well. The colours you have used also work marvellously together. Karen
