Floral calendar for October and November

Floral calendar for October and November - student project

 I gather my color palette inspiration from these two pictures.

I prefer to have my flowers look more realistic and vintage design. So I decided to draw my flowers using the blog brush. I am pretty happy with the selection of flowers I developed. I refered to pictures I took from this past summer wandering around a community garden and some from browsing my great great grandmother's card book from the 1800's.  Below, are the motifs I used but I forgot to take a screenshot of them all together colored in my color palette so some of them are the wrong color.

For October, I created a pattern out of the motifs for the background.

November, I just made bouquets of flowers from my motifs

This was a fun class. I hope to make a 2016 calendar soon.
