I love to draw, and I love flowers. So naturally, the majority of my work consists of florals. I’ve spent a lot of time over the years refining my style and the process that I use to approach drawing flowers into a few simple but specific steps.

Too often, we can get caught up in the intimidation of the next step. Or, we get discouraged early on when we try something new and it stops us from developing a new skill. I want to demonstrate that no matter your experience level, you can follow the steps that I lay out in this course to achieve a final piece that you can be proud of. 

I look forward to sharing with you some of my favourite techniques and tips to help you master the art of drawing flowers by hand. Using only a few basic materials, you will learn key skills so that you can draft and create your own composition. 

This is a beginner class, so don’t worry if you don’t have any drawing experience! This class is an excellent starting point if you’re interested in developing your drawing abilities and the skills shared here can be applied to different subject matters, not just florals! You may choose to create your own floral illustration with some of the skills we cover in this class. Or, if you want to follow along with what I'm doing, I've included a PDF download of a sketch you can print and use as a template to practice your ink drawing skills on top of!

In Floral Ink Illustration 101, we will cover: 

  • An overview of my go-to materials and the decisions behind choosing certain supplies and brands 
  • Tips on making the most of your art supplies 
  • Finding inspiration and reference photos for your drawings
  • Tangible ways to transform your inspiration into “guidelines” in pencil prior to working with ink
  • How to properly remove the guidelines once you’ve inked your image 
  • How to identify the outlines of petal and leaf shapes so that you can create a solid outline for your floral composition
  • Adding depth and texture to your shapes them to life
  • and more!

Materials:

  • A soft pencil, (HB) 
  • A black fine-liner pen, Sakura of America Micron 01 (.25 mm) recommended  
  • A kneadable eraser
  • A sketchbook or sketching paper, Canson Mixed Media 9x12 Sketchbook recommended

I can't wait to share with you my love of drawings, and of course, all things floral. Let's create something beautiful together!
