I drew this illustration spontaneously, on one calm evening, when my baby daughter was sleeping. And I instantly thought - I could totally teach that, this is so relaxing! And that's how my 10th Skillshare class was born!

I get very satisfying results by sketching my botanical compositions with simple shapes - veeeery simple shapes! This helps me tremendously to draw well-balanced compositions with a lot of detail, without feeling lost in the amount of elements. I have also described my sketching technique in detail in a blog post on my website:


I want to share this technique with as many people as possible, because ANYONE can draw and create beautiful compositions! Below is another example, from a German class of mine, but you get the point :)
