Affinity flowers

Affinity flowers - student project

Hi! 

I have decided to get to know my Affinity suite better, and what better way to learn than by doing fun projects, right?. 

I really enjoyed this painting technique, it's brand new to me and I can see a lot of advantages of using it over painting directly on a raster layer. 

These are the steps for my flower, starting with the reference image on the right, to finished colored flower on the left:

1. Reference

2. Masking color away

3. Drawing Outlines

I experimented a bit with other blending modes and using gradient images:

I thought about making a pretty composition, but I want to take it slow~ one class at a time, so for now this is it :D

 

Thank you Isabel!
