This Sunday during FaceTime SketchTime with my sister, I had to attempt to draw a daffodil. I selected a vase Chris made in college in pottery class. It was placed on a pink spotted imaginary napkin. For dramatic effect.
After that I moved on to the monarch butterfly. There have been sightings around here of the rare white monarch. This is not one of them. I am waiting patiently for the ink to dry before I move on to phase 2.
FaceTime SketchTime is fun. Today while we drew we discussed sprouted chia seeds and hand cream. Topics you would expect to come up while drawing.
While I waited on the monarch I decided to draw my friend Annette from a photo I took of her a while back in her stylish Tam.
For my final selection of the week, I give you the juvenile American Goldfinch. I was unaware that there was a hint of blue in the tail feathers of this species. These are the kinds of things you learn when sketching. You can also see the final version of the monarch below.
I decided to make him extra bright, to make up for all that white space I don't quite know what to do with yet. Next week I focus all my attention on background. Maybe. Unless more butterfly's are asking to be drawn. Monarchs are extremely fun subjects to sketch.
