It is hard to say how long I spent drawing this. It was made over a few months, waiting in doctors' offices. I had a little sketchbook that I could bring with me, and I'd sit in the waiting room, and work on this a little bit at a time.
Later I put a digital color wash ovr it, to try and make certain parts of it stand out more, and to see what it was like.

Did some watercolor poppies for the wife, @UnidentifiedBlog . These were fun to doodle. The stems and leaves for this plant are weird, but interesting.
I used Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor Paper, A Red Pilot Color Eno pencil for the sketch, a kneaded eraser that I don't know the brand for. I inked with a Sakura Micron in 01 and did the majority of the coloring with Sakura Koi 48 pocket field sketch watercolor. I also used some Prisma Verithin pencils for some more detailed coloring. The white is a UniBall Signo in medium. I also used some Crayola glitter watercolors to add some fun sparkle to the petals.
I really want to use more of my traditional stuff this year, so fingers crossed that I do that.

5 more pages to go. Thankfully had some time today where I wasn't exhausted from this kicking baby in my belly, and the kicking toddler running around the house.

No kidding. I can see why. That's one itty bitty ass bumble friend.

it's so deliciously spring-y out right now I love it
daffodils are starting to fade out a bit, but there's still some blooming in the bulb patch I started the winter before last! :D
This is the actual order of these! I made them out of order because I didn't think about it the first round XD
Let's see if it keeps moving by tomorrow.
I actually have no name for this one so...
A few days back, I got the idea of various of these gifs and I think I'm gonna try to make them, but simpler than in my head because I'm feeling lazy. The main rose was supposed to be bigger, but I kinda messed it up and didn't want to change it, so this is the first one.
Took me a while to do it, but I got it done, woo~
One of my grandma's peonies. The bushes are huge and are like, 50-60 years old.
summer vs winter
Flowers, flowers, more flowers . . . and a winter sunset after a rainstorm. All four are oil paintings, the first two on canvas and the second two on wooden panels.
💐-Favorite flowers or plants?
*dumps five packets of wildflower seeds together and yeets them into the bulb patch*
Flowers for the lost
Finished painting these flowers for a little cryptid blog I found on tmblr!!
Anemone for the feeling of been forsaken, Queen Anne’s lace for sanctuary, and Gladiolus, Statice and Forget me not for remembrance. I think that all of them look rather cute together <3
