I always love when you give us a peek in your sketchbook! One of the areas that I really struggle with is creating pattersn and filling things in like this. I'm much more comfortable leaving all kinds of negative space.

Beautiful colors and lovely patterns! How you photograph your sketchbook is wonderfully done as well, so nice to see the detail in every brush stroke and pen mark. Your flowers would make a gorgeous fabric or wallpaper!
