About This Class

Weeee! Now that you've learned some awesome floral illustrations from my Botanical Line Drawing Class, or perhaps my book, Botanical Line Drawing, it's time to create a composition! Not only will the class walk you through a proper composition and how to appropriately overlay flowers for the best aesthetic, it will also show you how to use negative space to feature additional elements to your botanicals.

Usually it's the other way around and you're adding botanical elements to a lettering piece, photograph, etc. but not now! These florals deserve to be shown off, so let's go there!
