This was like therapy! So relaxing to create something for no other reason than for fun. Here's some pics of the process of the first part.

I created a second set of plant pots using a limited colour palette that I discovered through my mood boards in Dylan's workshop 'Leveling up your art game'.

Developing my drawing style

 

Here's my forward facing flower doodles followed by a few side on.

I mostly draw quite precisely but have recently noticed I love it when I get to draw a little more sketchy, so I tried redrawing the side on flowers in a looser sketchy style. I also normally start with a pencil sketch before inking. It was quite freeing to go straight to ink without worrying about mistakes.

I've had a quick play with colour in Illustrator and this is what I ended up with.
