Anthuriums and Free Anthurium Digi

Aloha friends,

It's been a while because of health junk but today was a better day. For the longest time I've been wanting to try and just sketch images rather than searching for ones I would like and then buy them. I could not figure out how to use the Wacoam Bamboo sketch tablet so gave up and used a pencil and Pigma Micron 3.0 pen lol!!! Then I scanned it and it's for free to anyone who would like it. As I strike out further, I will try and upload more free images as long as the getting old part doesn't tamp me too far down. ---Right click over the image, then click on "Save Image As" and select a folder in your computer to store it. You can resize it in a "Paint" or Word program, even copy it four times on a single sheet of cardstock as you print. Enjoy!!!

Oh, and I watched one of the YouTube artists draw and picked up some great hints from his tutorial. Here is a link to watch Alphonso:

I left some lines lighter or blank to help your coloring or painting to look more realistic, like light is hitting those areas. Plus our eyes tend to fill in those details, too. I hope you have fun with this should you want free digis. And this is how I watercolored it:
