I made a collage of fotos that I took in a botanical garden before I started to sketch. Having worked as a graphic desigern for many years only using digital tools, I found it a bit hard to start sketching out of the blue, therefore I took the collage as a model. I worked with watercolours, since idon´t have guache.
It was really fun to see the picture grow. And when I finished it, I liked the result, but I also felt, I wanted to do it again, and try out some different styles.
So I started with painting some pebbles, in order to find a way to feel more free and experiment with the colours, and that really helped to take it more playfully.
After that I gave it another go and made a drawing with plants from a book.
