Sometimes I find my inspiration fire has dwindled down to ashes and think what will spark the creative flame again…never stop looking around you for what just might inspire your next projects…we took our Granddaughter shopping one day and found these beautiful botanical art prints in Nordstroms….my cell phone is always ready to catch an artful inspiration…I should call it my cell camera…I use the camera much more then using it as phone…
These snap shots were taken a few weeks back but have never left the right side of my brain…I’m fired up now to learn more about botanical art, structure and shading and to bring in more color and make the flowers a bit more whimsical!Been searching the big book stores online and there are so many books on this subject….if anyone has any good references I’m open to your suggestions…found only 3 books at Barnes & Noble Friday night and bought all 3, they made me a very happy girl! I usually buy from the used book listings which can be bought for much less but could not resist the excitement of starting my new inspirations!Just a quick sketching in my art journal from a botanical print I found on Pinterest…as my Mom’s college art teacher would tell her…”it’s a good beginning”
Will love searching these books for my next project…books, tea, sketching book…my favorite time of the day!
Where have you found inspiration lately?
