About This Class

this class is an intro to inking relaxed florals, starting with a basic rose bouquet.

pulling inspiration from the popular watercolor floral style, we’ll be creating floral rose bouquets with just one color to make beautiful high contrast florals.

we’ll learn how to overcome the lack of transparency and create dynamic flowers and greenery. i’ll provide you with step by step worksheets for creating simple roses and filler flowers & greenery, and reference floral arrangements and composition.
