We’ve had some winter wonderland snow-filled days here in the PNW, and although they were stunningly beautiful I am aching for spring. Michelle and I decided to break out our sketch pads for a pattern we had in mind for our Photoshop pattern class using your own illustrations, but it quickly escalated into a floral sketching bonanza. I haven’t done any sketching in what seems like years, but I can tell you just taking a few minutes here and there to sketch with pencil and paper, the most humble of tools, has made me wildly excited about the possibilities of actually having a creative hobby that I could do with a toddler in tow.
I don’t have a ton of drawing experience, and of course no formal training, but I am always open minded and eager to learn new techniques and intrigued by the supplies people use. Michelle and I decided to create the mega list of floral drawing tutorials so you too can get your floral drawing on. We hope you find some inspiration and maybe have a few ‘lightbulb’ moments. I know I did! Please note, not all these tutorials are pretty, but they do have good nuggets and I have learned so much in such a small amount of time. The best part is we can use our Lettering Rx to clean up the sketches super fast and share them with the world. I can tell you if I didn’t have this little tool in my arsenal these sample sketches would not see the light of day, at least until my daughter graduated college. So, we have that to be thankful for! If you try it let us know! And if you have any great tutorials or classes you want to add, leave them in the comments, we would love to know!
