Sketching the Alaska Forget-Me-Not

Alaska’s State flower is the Forget-Me-Not. It is such a simple and delicate little flower ranging in color from pale to deep blue and even shades of pink. With a gentle fragrance of baby powder, it is one of my favorite flowers.

I’ve been taking part in a fellow artist’s “75 Day Sketching Challenge” and the last several sketches posted have been part of the challenge. Some artists are sharing every sketch on their blogs, but you really don’t want to see some of my experiments. My first sketch of the Forget-Me-Not looked like I had run them over with the car before I sketched them. They were very sad.

One thought on “Sketching the Alaska Forget-Me-Not

  1. Your sketchbook pages are so beautiful, Suzie. My first attempts have been quite meager, but I figure I’ll be able some day to look back and see much improvement!
