Watching other artists draw and paint has been extremely helpful for me as I have relearned how to draw and paint. So I thought that it might help others to observe my drawing process as well.
I plan to begin uploading more tips and tutorials related to sketchbooks, drawing, and painting. If you find them helpful or have suggestions, please comment below.
Today’s video tutorial is a speed drawing video of two peonies. I draw a common peony, and a Japanese tree peony with a Sakura Micron pen, #02. To preserve my pen nibs, I use smooth, heavyweight copy paper. Resource links are below.
While editing the video, I noticed that it would help for me to zoom in so that you can see the process in more detail, so I will keep that in mind going forward.
Here’s the video:
Both drawings were referenced from this book:
Treasury of Flower Designs for Artist, Embroiders & Craftsmen: 100 Garden Favorites by Susan Gaber
Here are the materials used to complete these peony line drawings:
- Drawing utensil: #02 Sakura Micron Pen
- Drawing paper: Georgia Pacific Super Premium Bright Ink Jet Paper
(This paper is smoother than regular copy paper and helps preserve my pen nibs.)
- HP also makes a great one.
