A Rose Garden

Hello!
This is my first project on Skillshare.
Even though I am a photographer I didin't know how to use Illustrator. So it took me about 4 long months to get used to the basics and begin doing some drawings.
I followed step by step everything that Bonnie explained in the videos and then I had to repeat them many times over and over to finally get the 'feeling'.
So here is what I came up with.

I tried to keep it simple, so I took photographs from plants around my house.
Here is my moodboard

By the time I began sketching and drawing, the beautiful orchid you see in my moodboard was all dried up and fell off the stem (here's the picture). I tought it was easier to draw them like this.

Here my inspiration board:

and the sketches. The rose was a brush I created from a photograph and used it in Illustrator.

Finally came the moment of truth to put color in my drawings.

I don't yet understand where the black color came from?? I was using the Recolor Artwork tool. Anyway I like it very much.

Then I did a different design using the same elements from the sketches but this time only the orchids.

Thank you Bonnie for this amazing class! You are a great teacher and I enjoyed the process very much.

Hope I can get better at doing this.
