The 50 Flowers Project--Alabama
I will readily admit that I have no formal training in any artistic technique. I see what I want to draw or paint and then I just work at it until I like what I have. A couple of months ago it dawned on me that I needed to practice, practice, practice drawing what I see. I LOVE flowers of all types, so I decided to start there. My favorite flower is the Gladiolus, and I began searching "The Google" for pictures of Gladiolus. I came across the 50 States Official Flower page, and I was hooked. Now I have embarked on a sketch a day (15 minute sketches) to improve my skill and have a designated enjoyment at the end of the day. I do love sketching! :)
So here we go!
This one is pretty rough, but I know I will improve as I practice.
