Sketchbook Abandoned No More

These last few doodles are the rest of the drawings that I abandoned a few years ago then completed in these last few weeks. I know why I gave up originally, and in some ways I’m kind of surprised I was able to get something presentable out of them.

The first doodle took the longest, by far, out of all my recent drawings. I wanted to use only curves instead of sharp corners, and I wanted only swirls and plants. It looks very tangley, which I like.

The second doodles is a state flower. Its Oregon Grape holly. The blossoms are quite small, about the size of a grape, and I forgot which flower it was. I was resigned to calling it a random flower until I came across the original image I used as a reference. There is some goofyness to it, but it came out all right in the end.
