Some Flower Boquets

Some Flower Boquets - student project

This is a great class. Thanks, Amarilys! 

I have always felt that I was not great at painting flowers and I have always wanted to! I love flowers. So it's been fun watching this videos and just playing around with watercolors.

So far, I have been experimenting with the drop technique. I find that I have a more difficult time with composition so I'd like to work on that. So far, I tend to paint the flowers in bouquets or vases! 

Here are a couple of drop ones I have done:

Then I did one that is more illustrative and I decided to make it into a sympathy card (using bounce lettering from Teela Cunnigham's Skillshare class!).

Looking forward to playing around with vintage flowers... !
