Keeping it simple hasn't always come naturally to me, although as I get a little older the concept becomes more and more attractive. Sounds rather inviting and relaxing doesn't it?
So, with simplicity in mind, I recently gave myself a very short time period in which to sketch and color something. I chose a foxglove that was in bloom in my garden and decided to do the sketch digitally (using Corel Painter and a Wacom tablet). I worked with pen and ink and digital watercolor.
I've got mixed feelings about the result. Looks a little untidy to me but at least I stayed within my time limit... and away from the details!
