With this one I just started sketching one of the flowers in a small arrangement sitting on my desk. I really had no plan.
The small flower arrangement replaces (almost identical) a live arrangement Terry gifted me with and of course started fading after several days. I was fortunate to find a little artificial group at Hobby Lobby that had same type of flowers and even the coloring or close to it.
Getting back to the sketch, I started out with one of the daisies. Then added partials of two others. I didn't want to include leaves as they are too far down in the arrangement to look right at the angle I was sketching the daisies. I sat for awhile trying to decide what to do as the little grouping I was working on was smack dab center of my journal page.
I added some dark scribbling to suggest a darker type flower mixed in. Still wasn't satisfied so I added more partial daisies trying to work my way to the right of the page (as you view it). When I sat back and looked, it looked too boxy for my liking. I could have added another daisy up top but I wanted to maintain an odd number............so again, I had to sit and think where do I want to go from here and how do I go about it.
Finally I finished the page and this is what I chose to do to finish it off....
