New Watercolor-Ink Illustrations

It's been I while since I created my last Nature-Mandala-Pattern illustration...I was craving to do some white ink details too...I wanted to paint...

 While I was doing a commissioned work these new illustrations were born and I'm happy the way they turned out.

Not very inspired to write...

Flowers and Bugs

With a few tools and inspiration from books and internet you can draw flowers and bugs.
 ...You can draw anything you like!  For proof check this post.

To make this page with flowers and bugs I got inspiration from Marjorie Blamey's Wild Flowers By Colour,  Icon Butterflies by Albertus Seba and images from internet on my trusty iPad.

I used a Stillman and Birn Zeta Sketchbook wirebound 6x8, Pentel P205 mechanical pencil with H leads, my absolute favorite fountain pen for drawing a Sailor Sapporo with EF nib, Copic Multiliner SP 0.1, kneaded eraser and a plastic circle template (I only use it to get the petals even, I don't use it when I draw my mandalas).

Creation: process of bringing into existence.

After seeing this doll in my "mental screen" I made a basic sketch on a piece of paper. Little modifications here and there until it look like the creature I'd seen.
I copied the drawing on the fabric using a window as a light-box, then I chose the colors and started outlinig and coloring.
It is a slow, relaxing and meditative process ...and many hours of stitching ahead.
Looking forward to my creation.

Trying The Fabriano Classico 5 Fat Pad

Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils on Fabriano Classico 5 Fat Pad.
50% Cotton HP 300g Watercolor paper, nice for practice.
I wish it was portrait format instead of landscape... and the spiral a little bit smaller...
