Susan Brubaker Knapp here. This month’s theme, Garden Doodles, is perfect for me, and not so perfect. Why? I love plants, flowers and gardens. But I don’t really doodle. Maybe it’s because I’m too uptight. Maybe it’s because I’m a bit more of a perfectionist than I’d like. At any rate, I took a stab at Garden Doodles and ended up with not-quite-doodles.
Take the beautiful day lily above. I shot this photo on my iPhone5 (I love having a camera in my pocket or purse wherever I go!) on my morning walk around my neighborhood with my dog. Here’s my doodle. Well, sketch. At least I did it in ink (Sharpie permanent pen), rather than in pencil and then ink, as I usually do. I was trying to doodle!
And here is it after the water color:
This is my photo of a yellow rose:
My photo of a Lenten Rose:
And the doodle with water color:
Next time, I'm going to try harder to actually doodle.
