Autumn Sketches

Happy Friday, all!

I have a few doodles to show you this week:



The above picture is the view I see each morning when I’m eating breakfast. I sketched it out while eating my oatmeal and then turned it into an ink and watercolor illustration later. I was amused by all the lines, angles, and patterns that occur in the manmade parts of the view. ┬áThere’s the doorframe, the curb, the siding, the shingles, the balcony rungs…etc. ┬áWhen I made the version above, I decided that using color only for the “organic”, blobby stuff would help emphasize the stark linear look of the buildings. That’s one of the things I enjoy observing in life — ┬áthe visual contrast between man-made patterns and organic patterns.

The rest of my sketches were just little experiments. I went for a walk and noticed how some trees’ leaves change in random clusters (rather sporadically), while others seem to transition from summer to fall with a smooth gradient bleeding down from top to bottom. ┬áThe gradient reminded me of watercolors mixing, so I played with that a little when I got home.





I hope you enjoy these! Isn’t Autumn inspiring? I THINK SO!
