Orange and Yellow Patches

I was nearly finished with my "gesture" drawing for Illustration Friday's word for the week. Then I ruined it with spilled ink. At such times I remind myself, "it's only paper." So I drew something completely different. Patches of orange and yellow marker, and a wandering line doodled with brown Micron pen.

Landscape with Scribbly Lines on Watercolor Paper

For this imaginary landscape, I scribbled lines in many colors of ink, then colored with my Copic markers. The markers look like watercolors on the soft, thick Arturo paper. Love the fuzzy torn edges.
  • Copic 0.3 colored multiliners used: Sky blue, sepia, cool gray, cobalt, olive, wine, pink
  • Other pens used: Micron 0.5 brown, Faber-Castell Pitt sepia F
  • Copic marker colors used: Custom color B2000, B21,41,63, BG70,72, C0, W0, E21,41,81,87, YG61,63,91, BG93, BV20

Pattern of Vines and Flowers

An overall pattern of vines and flowers, drawn with Copic 0.3 black multiliner and colored with Copic markers. My inspiration was a very different painting, a wall border around the top of a large dining room (photo below).

Due to my underlying grid of 2" squares and 1-1/2" circles, my drawing has a formal, static appearance. Drawn for Illustration Friday's word for the week, "stay," which is a lot like "static" (remaining in place.)

Blue and Brown Doodle

Just a doodle. Rounded shapes and arched lines, colored in blues and browns.

It's been a very long time since I posted a drawing. My artistic efforts have gone more into card making, as posted on my other blog, Mostly Markers - Cards.
