Flowering Cacti Illustrations



I really love cacti, especially varieties that flower as there is always something quite beautiful about the hard spikes and shapes of the cactus compared to the soft and delicate flower. These were just a couple of quick sketches but maybe I will work into some ideas and create a pattern from them.

I saw a photo of this guy and just knew I had to draw his face as it is so expressional and happy. I drew this fairly quickly one Sunday and it hasn't turned out exactly as I would of hoped, I think some of the proportions are a little out so I may have to have another go.

Garden Sketches


It was such a beautiful day yesterday that when I returned home from work the sun was still shining and it was one of those glorious warm summer evenings, I decided to get my sketchbook out and go into the garden. I took a felt tip and a fine liner and just did a load of quick sketches of flowers and leaves.
I sometimes love drawing like this, not using a pencil so you can't erase any marks made and enjoying the freedom.
None of the drawings are masterpieces but I enjoyed drawing 
every one.
