I’ve been dabbling a little more with watercoloring, and I’m hooked. I’m realizing that the possibilities are endless. Since I first shared my adventures in watercoloring, I’ve picked up this inexpensive set of watercolors. There is a bit more mixing with water involved, but it makes for different saturations of color – love that.
This time around, I wanted to explore digitally with flowers so I painted a few abstract pieces – stems, leaves, and buds.
I dabbled a bit with triangles, but was not sure where I was going with that one!
After scanning my drawings and cleaning them up in Photoshop, I chose my favorite elements to work with. I settled on these below.
And here is where the possibilities are endless. Using Illustrator, I converted the elements to vectors so that I could resize them and not loose any quality. With just a few designs, I was able to come up with a couple of different floral arrangements.
I continue to love learning this new medium. I enjoy creating something tangible and then being able to alter it digitally. Of course, so many more ideas swirling in my head….
