Learn to Think Like a Designer: 100 Flowers

I started my 100 flowers on Monday (Jan 11 2016) I picked flowers mainly because nature is something I want to explore more where drawing and painting is concerned ( and if im honest, it felt slightly easier then leaves) 

As of Jan 15 I have drawn or painted 36 ( guess I still have a way to go) 

Here are some explames of what Ive done so far

Today (Jan15) I started to look at pictures of flowers and created two mood boards, just to help me go to the next stage ......

Jan 18th 

Have worked on the project on and off since the 15th ... I did take a break on the 15th 

I did my brainstorm

which really got me thinking in so many ways ...and Im sure I could have added so many other words to this.. like greeting cards , wrapping paper and so on and so on .... 

I tried lots of different mediums ... like watercolors (before I had used watercolor pencils) and ink... also looked at different styles..like a more primitive style, abstract and things like that.

I did go play ... I went and colored with my daughter.... in her enchanted Forest coloring book ... and that gave me some more ideas ..... 

I also tried typography ....and included flowers with it ....all of this you can see below... Ive not included everything cause I dont want to bore everyone to bits 

and I can honestly say there is always 1 or 2 flowers i really dont like on every page and a few that make me go wow did I just draw that :) ... drawing isnt my strong point ...for a living I hold a camera ..so this had really challeneged me.
