In the Works
sketchbook <3 Inspiration is beauty. I enjoy the surprises inspiration brings with each new day. Sometimes, I’ll go out into nature in search of one thing that I’d like to draw but then find a completely different subject has caught my eye and pulls me in a new and fascinating direction. The details of this were just too lovely not to draw. I’m not sure what seed pod this beauty belongs to. Do you?
One moment at a time. The reminder that I’ve had to keep telling myself over and over this week. When there are many things begging for attention, the only way through is taking one thing and one moment at a time. Each time I look at my phone, I have a bit of beauty with the reminder to cheer me on. You can find it in my stories, and save it as your wallpaper too. ☺️ 🌷Wishing you a beautiful Friday 🌷
Sketchbook <3 The perpetual sketchbook journey to have weekly drawing time just for fun. For the second week of play, I told my perfectionist artist to go away so I could make some mistakes. 💜 Do you allow freedom in your life (or art) to accept the “mistakes”?
The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him. —Auguste Rodin
Drawing feathers says “home” to me. Most of the these lovely feathers were drawn from memory. They are so memorized in my mind that it’s a melody to sing to paper. When drawing your subject from life, you work your muscles for memory. Just like dancing, you remember the steps because you practiced it over and over until your muscles had it memorized. Once memorized a lovely flow comes. The dance now can come alive with feeling.
So happy to share that the sword fern step-by-step drawing guide is now live and available at my website! [brettabutterfly.com] Such a delight to pull this guide together. It’s my favorite one yet. 🤓 Included is a beautiful design page that will help you identify the parts. So looking forward to seeing how you will add ferns into your drawings! 💜🥰 __________________________ Music: Au Cinema Site: https://icons8.com/music/
