More Spring Flower Experiments

There are a lot of flowers that appear in my sketches in spring. I’ve been out sketching at Filoli Gardens, in mustard fields, and I just had to capture the local poppies. Here are some more.

Iris while waiting. Drawn in watersoluble pencil and ink, with color added using Nina’s portable trace monoprinting setup.

The start of a sketch with poppies that never got finished. Like many loose pieces that don’t go where I want them to, this one will be cut up to become postcards.

And a sketchbook spread with tulips from my local farmer’s market.

Not sure where I am going with this yet, but I am particularly enjoying creating strong contrasts and the sort of marks not associated with pretty flower sketches.

    I love the loose illustration of the poppies, you did a great job of illustrating a meadow full of flowers!
    But tulips are my favorite flower, so I found the tulip spread really enjoyable and lovely!
