An attempt at line drawing. . .

I'm a big fan of Lisa Congdon's art - colorful, whimsical, and fun while appearing deceptively easy.  Her Basic Line Drawing class is a treat to watch.  I'm nearly finished with it and love her effortless way of teaching. 
Tried my hand at some stylized flowers - while they could use some work I think the addition of watercolor helps to disguise some of unintentional wonkiness (is that a word?) -

Yes, Michelle I do believe that "wonkiness" is a word directly meant for the art world. LOL I really like your line art. It doesn't look easy to me. I think you did an excellent job.
Have a fun and safe weekend
