Doodles to Draw Step-By-Step

1st Step:

Sketch out some flower pots. These don’t all have to be your run-of-the-mill terra cotta pot, you can try doodling a bowl, a mason jar, a bucket, etc.

I always like to start my doodles with a MONO Drawing Pencil, rather than starting with ink, just so that I can easily erase anything I don’t like.

2nd Step:

Doodle in your plants! Plant suggestions: saguaro cactus, barrel cactus, succulents, daisies, vines, etc. You can also just doodle flowers from your imagination!

3rd Step:

Go over your doodles with a MONO Drawing Pen. I personally like the 03 tip size for doodling, so that’s what I used here. The ink dries instantly, so you can go back right away and erase any pencil lines that are showing!

4th Step:

Color in your doodles! I used Vol 1 of the Irojiten Colored Pencil Dictionary because I loved the bright colors- they remind me of Spring, which is perfect for coloring in plants, right?

5th Step:

Now grab your TwinTone markers and add outlines and details on top of the colored pencils! I love how the pastel TwinTone colors match up so well with this set of Irojiten Colored Pencils!


That’s it from me today! Happy Doodling!
