Upated with CALENDAR CHALLENGE ADDED - Cherries & Blooms
Whew! Had to go over my notes several times and then Illustrator gave me the dreaded window "can't preview - not enough memory!" I though I was doomed - but after rebooting I was able to get my files back up and running.
Started with the hand drawn watercolor of the individual "parts" and then scanned them in.
First color story was the soft pink-yellow & greens.
Second color story more in-your-face with reds & blue-lavenders and I reduced it to only 10 colors vs. 17
There was a lot of quality info in this class. Thank you Bonnie!
Updated this project with the 2017 calendar challenge.
I painted in watercolor some new floral/leaf motifs and applied them to AI based on this class.
Then added a step further by drawing black loose outlines on the motifs.
Finally worked up the calendar dates and added those. Learned some new type techniques playing around with this so the challenge had lots of benefits!
