girl in the garden

I'm really interested in my garden lately, although I could have taken better care of my sunflowers cause they look very sickly. But everything else has been wonderful, forget-me-nots, tomatoes, Petunias, morning glorys, raspberries, a rampaging gourd plant with a million warty gourds growing, and my wonderful grape vine that is taking over the entire garden. I got a lot of bunches of grapes this year so I finally decided to make good use of them. Yesterday I made 4 jars of jam, and I've got 2 more from earlier. YUM! Anybody wants some jam, I can definitely make another half a dozen jars C:
This piece is made with watercolor and colored pencil, just a simple doodle. I'm planning on getting into a bigger project with this garden theme, hopefully before school starts again.

Fawn in the Garden

Here is another small illustration 
I should have been doing my children's book illustration homework this entire week, but since Wednesday I decided "NOPE" I'm done. I was supposed to continue the winter illustration I did last week with another spread.  I have a sketch idea, the large paper mapped out and plenty of time but even with all that I have NO motivation. I'm sure I could do a decent job if I hammered through it but I know it would be no fun and really stressful like the previous one was. So, instead of torturing myself, I decided to continue these little illustrations with the garden and animal theme. For some reason, maybe because these are so much smaller and less permanent, I've been having fun doing them and could probably keep making them with out it feeling like a chore. I'm far too indecisive so being able to pick the colors in photoshop takes away almost all the anxiety I get when painting.
