Hooray! A friend of mine was able to help me with my file and save it! Here are my 2 watercolor patterns in 2 different but similar colorways.

Well I had the very unfortunate event of my watercolor Illustrator file becoming corrupted. I was able to open the file in Photoshop to make a png, however, it's not the final version that I was most pleased with. Sadly, I will have to start from scratch building out my patterns again. Here is a little peak as to what I started with. I know I wont finish by tonight, but I had fun in the workshop. It's been fun watching the progress of fellow classmates!

Hi everyone!

Here is my first draft of motifs. I'm having fun with it playing with some crazy colors. I can't tell if I like the black outline or no outline, so I've done a few of both. Live tracing was fun too!

I'm enjoying seeing everyones creations!

Cheers!

Greetings!

Here is my mood board/collection of photos for our first assignment in Workshop #2.

There isn't much to look at in nature in the cold city of Chicago these days. I did the next best thing and found some old photos and took a trip to the grocery store and snapped some photos of flowers in the floral department! Desperate times huh? I'm excited to be here and see what everyone creates!
