Daisy Sketch

This daisy was another Drawing Day sketch and I must admit that I chose this flower because it was nearest the edge of the path in our overgrown meadow, and I didn’t want to search any further for a subject. After I sat down with it, though, it grew on me. Its petals went every-which way, and they were fun to draw!

I drew the petals by paying as much attention to the spaces between them as to the petals themselves. I sketched them with a tight thin line, and then switched to a loose side of pencil hatch for the rest of the flower including the inner disc, stem, and leaves. I like the look of precise petals along side those loose dark notes.

    Dear Carol,
    I simply wanted you to know that this sketch was very inspirational to me. I am currently writing a novel and was searching for the image of a daisy to represent one of the character’s tattoos. Yours was the only picture I was satisfied with. Your art is absolutely lovely.

    Sincerely,
    Jayne

      Hi Jayne,

      I think I answered you by email, but if I didn’t I’m sorry for the delay. I’m very happy to hear that my art is inspiring your art! And the circle goes ’round and ’round. :)
