A Lady in Summer

A Lady in Summer - student project

The timing of this class was super-perfect for me, since I was thinking about doing something like this anyway, so thank you!!

I recently happened upon an illustrator, Rocio Montoya, who is adding plants and flowers to women's faces, and I wanted to try that myself.

So this piece of his was my inspiration:

I used the Vintage Illustrations link from the class resources and found some really nice images of flowers and bugs. I downloaded about six images to use for this illustration starting with a beautiful lady:

And then I snipped out the flowers, leaves and bugs. That was pretty fun, actually.

So here it is!

I really love how it all came together, and I'm looking forward to doing more of this! Thanks for the inspiration!
