Oriental Lily/Shirley Poppy


This weekend I got another beautiful bouquet at the local farmers' market, including a stem of these gorgeous lilies. I love to draw flowers like this, with just a little color, and record the impressions of the experience in doodles all around it. Why the bird stamp? Just for fun! Below is a Shirley Poppy in the same style from last month in my garden. Click on the picture for a larger image to read the words!

Black Micron pen and Prismacolor markers in my sketchbook.
