100 Flowers

Okay, so I just finished watching the project brief and I'm following directions. I didn't even get up for my colored pencils or paint. I just grabbed a pencil nearby and drew 10 quickie flowers without thinking.

10 more flowers today! If I keep this up, I'll be done in 10 days.

below is part of my mood board. I've included logos, gardens, trees, wildflowers, sketches and art pieces to inspire me. Maybe tomorrow I'll have time to use my art tools and make something pretty.

Today I pulled out markers, inktense pencils, a pan of watercolors and some pastels. It was fun getting my hands dirty for a few minutes. This makes 43. I'm almost to the halfway point. I'm sure my dip is coming, but I haven't hit it, yet.

This makes 62 and I'm still on a roll!

So my boyfriend is making chilli and I'm getting in his way because I'm making flowers with the food. :) I used an onion for the first four and peppers for the next three and the last one is a combination of onions and peppers.

We're snowed in today, so I worked on several art projects. I tried my hand at origami flowers. The lotus fower with regular copy paper came out okay. Then I remembered I have some metallic origami paper. This random flat origami flower for kids came out so-so. The last one is a disaster. I was trying to make a lily since it's my favorite flower, but I can't understand the directions. So I'm posting my jacked up half a lily to show my effort.

I'm taking another class that requires me to learn to use vector images. I use Inkscape since I can't affored Illustrator right now. It's better than I expected for a free program, but you definitely need the tutorial. It's not really intuitive. When I finished part of that assigment today, I played around and made these flowers.

I played around with typography to make these flowers, and I think they turned out cute! I used the font Janda Apple Cobbler for the first two and Gabriola for the third one. This was a great exercise for learning to use type as objects. I not only changed the sizes of the letters, I also used the handles to distort the shapes.

Today I played with the 3D box tool.
