Experimenting - student project

Hi! In the past I have had painted many florals, leaves and flowers but all in realism and watercolour. With this class I want to go more abstract and illustrative coz I want to explore illustration more and grow in this direction. Im learning how to simplify but also I want to have fun and get loose with colours (gouache, markers and pencils), coz lately I started to fear to paint full scene in colour. I'm not finished with this class, I will paint more but for now I want to share two sketchbook paiges with you. I'm planning to make library for few more things (tress, bushes, mushrooms) and would be nice to use narrow colourpalette but will see how it goes. You are great teacher! Thank you!
