Plant dreams

Hi Juliet,

 

Coming into this class, I had many misgivings.  Botanicals are hard.  Like really hard for me and I've leaned ever so heavily on lines to describe flowers.  With your help and gentle manner, I let myself be free with the brush and just let things emerge.  

My attempt at using shapes for each of the flowers

1 Poppy

2 Larkspur3092033b

3 Lilies

6 Hydrangea

7 Peruvian lily

I found putting a background wash made the piece feel a bit more complete (except for the hydrangea...man did that one give me trouble!)

 

Next into Ps, it was nice to work digitally to isolate the flowers and choose a different color background.

Then I thought, let's make them bloom together.  So here's this bouquet done in 2 ways.

Thank you, Juliet.  Your instruction made florals approachable and has given me less pause for fear in trying to express them on paper.
