Sometimes, inspiration to start a new sketch is as simple as using up some extra paints that's on my palette.

With my paints set out & ready, it's much easier & faster to finish a sketch. A small sketchbook can make the process faster too. The name of the game is to capture the fleeting light & atmosphere.
This #4 Silver Ultra Mini is perfect for layering on the impressionistic blossoms & flickering light.

I'm sort of channeling Georgia O'Keeffe with this little Wood Anemone. She is best known for her enlarged flowers. By magnifying her subject, she emphasized shape & color, & brought attention to the tiny details within a little flower. With our busy lives, we haven't the time to see such a tiny flower. To SEE, takes time!

If one look hard enough, there's hints of green from the buds on the tree. Looks like it's time to switch over to a springy palette!

This started as just a sketch from my Easter Bouquet. I haven't painted a teddy bear lately. Just by adding this little bear, the sketch is turning into an illustration.

I pull some butterfly & hummingbird from my archive, just to add some movement. These sweet elements are pretty enough for a birthday greeting, get well, or just to say hello.
