Pencil sketch botanicals

Pencil sketch botanicals - student project

This course is just what I needed to get me out of a creative rut. I love the texture and sketchy-ness drawing in pencil gives, but always end up drawing over in ink to get a good scan to digitise. I'm intrigued to see what my work will look like without the ink. Here's the sketches that I'll be digitising.

Scanned, cleaned and live traced ready for colouring with my chosen palette.

I loved playing around with the sketches to create a simple art print and a floral bouquet.

Just for fun I created a couple of mock ups.
