I started watching this class after I got one of my illustration ideas. I had the idea of a hot air balloon kept afloat by flowers.
A rose sketch
Wet in wet technique
I found this technique hardest. The darker color overlay on some of the flowers doesn't really match the underlying flower. I do love how playful this looks.
I loved creating these. You get far more time to think things trough and that fits more into my comfort zone.
My final drawing. The hot air balloon with flowers. The idea changed a bit while working on this project. So the flowers aren't keeping the balloon afloat as was my first idea when starting to sketch for this illustration. I used the different ideas and techniques on flowers that I've learned along the way.
Thanks for the inspiration and the great class! Learned a lot!
