A sketch a day Days 47-50

Day 47.  Sturt’s Desert Pea.  This flower is unique to Australia and grows in arid places.  The very red flowers are about 9cm long and have bulbous black centres and sage green leaves.

I used Aquarelle watercolour pencils for this.

Day 48.  Chameleon.. Another fun drawing- upside down.  It really makes a big difference to me doing it this way.  Pen and pencil sketch.

Day 49. Our apple tree .  No fruit this year as it was heavily pruned last season.  an ordinary black- lead pencil was sufficient today.  Photos are still woeful with dark backgrounds

Day 50.  Here I am back up top for the last post.  I found a bird feather, which is on the left side and my sketch beside it.

  1. There are some really unusual flowers Down Under, as well as animals and feathers. All your sketches are great!

  2. Must try the upside down theory – who knows, maybe it might happen that I can draw after all!! Beautiful feather btw.

    • Maybe we could try embroidering upside down too. LOL

  3. All amazing pictures, but I REALLY like the tree. It is so realistic, and I’m glad you did that one. I also think the feather is amazing.

  4. Thank you Susan. The tree in reality is so knotty from limb pruning that I had to try to capture it.
