About This Class

SKILL LEVEL: Beginner

Welcome to Inky Florals! This class is my first ever 'Style Study,' where I choose one topic (for this class, it's florals), and one medium (ink) and create 3 unique styles that are totally different from one another.

Florals just so happen to be my very favorite subject, so you can expect to pick up a few tips and tricks on illustrating beautiful botanicals that can be applied in many different styles and with other mediums, as well.

Throughout the lessons, we explore 3 unique styles:

1. Ink as a watercolor, to create watercolor roses with leafy stems
2. Using black ink to create abstract, bold, painterly bouquets
3. Folk-Art-Inspired and Modern Botanicals that use crisp lines and white space to POP!
