About This Class

29c23691

One of my favorite things to draw are flowers; especially wildflowers. I'll show you how to illustrate some of these, step-by-step, and we'll then work on a final project together that combines the lessons into a floral quote. No lettering skills needed! 

You can use this art for personal use, or take your work and turn it into a greeting card or art print and gift it to someone special.

SUPPLIES -  For this class, you'll only need a few things:

• your favorite ink pens, in a variety of sizes 
 (my favorite: Micron Pens)

• pencil

• regular printer or copy paper

• this Pinterest Board for reference

• this printable template  (optional)


WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
 
I'll show you some easy illustration techniques to create light & shadows on your florals, and how to add different textures to your work. We will use some reference images, and I'll take you through my process of creating a balanced layout. For the final project, we will combine the florals and text together into a fun composition. In the end, you'll have all the tools and skills you need to create even more floral illustrations!
