Whimsical Florals

Whimsical Florals - student project

I am a professional artist/illustrator and am familiar with sketching and watercolors but I love learning from others and playing with new techniques. My style of drawing is very detailed and full of precise lines and colors so it was really fun to loosen up and learn from Katie. "Relaxing my hand" felt very foreign to me but I tried my best. =P 

Below were my results. I couldn't help but put my own spin on the illustration. I really enjoyed finding fashion inspiration and plan to incorporate that in future works. Hope you like. =)

Inspiration: Valentino Resort 2013

Pencil sketch and watercolors.

I embellished with a bit of iridescent glitter along the hems and in the hairbows.

I really enjoyed this exercise, Katie! And I'd love to see one with detailed face work.
