About This Class

This class is jam-packed with step-by-step examples on Botanical Illustration. It is a natural followup for Esther's previous class Digital Illustration: Draw A Vertical Garden on iPad, but it could also serve as a stand-alone class if you already are familiar with the Procreate App on iPad. Esther walks through 12 unique groupings of floral elements step by step, revealing all the techniques she uses along the way. 

Here are a few things that she covers in this class:

  • drawing 12 floral elements
  • adding texture
  • brush setting adjustments
  • adding graceful highlight
  • how to make your brushes more "creamy"
  • advanced coloring techniques'
  • color adjustment
  • how to add volume to your florals
  • tips on pairing flowers
  • quick gestures

Here is the "prequel" botanical drawing class if you like to draw flowers.
