Mr E gave me a suggestion that I create some shapes using negative space rather than outlining them. Here is my first attempt–it’s not very subtle, but I still like how it tuned out. This doodle also features Golden California Poppies, the state flower of, you guessed it, California. I added in the sky motif I liked so much from my treadmill drawing.
Eagle eyed viewers will notice that the blank negative space is an animal I am particularly fond of.
For this drawing I broke away from using only Pilot Precise pens and used some new fine-point sharpies for the outlines and colored brush pens to “paint” the flowers.
So far, I’ve done flowers for places I have lived in, next is the Sego Lily. Some seagulls may make an appearance in that doodle as well, or maybe some beehives…
