A Fall Doodle – Finished!

Remember when I started this doodle in my sketchbook?

I recently completed it!  I really like how it turned out, how about you?  🙂

It is fun to look back and see my progress:

The finished size is approximately 6 x 8 inches.

Now I’m excited to start a new doodle –  Maybe I will use this photo of my honeysuckle with its autumn berries as my inspiration!

Aren’t the colors just AMAZING?!!!

Have Fabulous Friday Friends!!!  🙂

Honeysuckles and Hummingbirds

I previously posted photos of the honeysuckle vine growing in my yard, such as this one:

Honeysuckle photo for drawing

I decided to sketch the above photo with a black micron pen and paint in watercolor:

Watercolor Honeysuckle bloom

It doesn’t look totally like the photo but I’m OK with that.  It was not easy to do!

Did you know that the flower’s meaning is HAPPINESS?  It also symbolizes the devoted affection in the form of a lover’s embrace.

The sweet nectar of the honeysuckle is one the hummingbird’s favorite.  You can see a hummingbird I previously drew in color pencils, here.

Wishing you a day of happiness!   🙂
