Acanthus

Acanthus - student project

Thank you Barbel for this very detailed and well explained class! I learned so much. I tried my hand at this very stylized leaf, and drew the basic leaves (1 and 2), as well as the turnover 1 and 2 and the simple scroll. In the end I added a little rabbit eating the leaf, as a simple ink illustration. It is something different for me, as I am used to do a lot of watercolors. 

I will need to transfer the illustration onto watercolor paper (what you see are the ink drawings on tracing paper), and figure out how to make it work. For now, here are all the drawings:
