Illustration Friday - "Alphabets"

f is for flower....and some other [nice] 'f' words. and i say that with tongue in cheek as that's how it came out when my daughter asked what this sketch was about :)

i do love this time of year and flowers are always a favorite subject, whether i'm rendering them realisitically or just making doodles :) anyhow, i would love to do a whole alphabet in flowers like this - great fun! [and yes it's in there]

one more thing - cheers to all those celebrating the last official long weekend of the summer!!!




















moleskine, watercolor, colored pencil

This is lovely!!--such a wonderful, whimsical style! I so love the seeds falling to the ground, in the flower's last attempt to procreate.

How was the fair? Hope you had fun!
