Hi. I love Juliet's beautiful loose and abstract style not to mention color sense. She makes it look so easy but it's not...I enjoyed working with the dip pen which I have not used in ages. I struggle with getting too much detail and overworking. Holding the brush loosely is really helpful. I'm inspired to keep going with this. The class work is beautiful :)
Here's my dip-pen practice. This book is one of my favorites by Ariella Chezar for gorgeous floral inspiration.
Start of painting--trying to stay loose and let the paint flow before adding details...
I think I went overboard here with details, especially with the largest flower. I need to stop myself next time. Trying to work much quicker and looser. Practice, practice, practice!
