Illustrating beautiful flowers - student project

Hi Everyone!!!

I really loved this class. I think it was amazing in every sense and couldn't wait to start my project. I always wanted to learn how to do simple sketches and this technique is impressive because I feel it delivers inmediate results. Sorry about this first pic but I had terrible lighting yesterday and I had to work with what I had at the moment! I decided on different flowers and included a few more to give it more variety. I used watercolors instead of markers because I don't have them (but now I must have ! ) and I think It was pretty fun anyway. I prepared the color to simulate the freshness of the markers and tried to imitate the technique by just loading the brush with enough color to paint but keeping the moisture at bay. :)

Here is the work in progress after applying all the color

And here is the final piece with all the textures. I had a little accident with the red flower because I loaded the brush in water by accident and created a little mess with the black ink but , those things happens with watercolors so I just let it go !!
