I'm preparing for South Africa and re-vamping the Monet's Garden class…
Considering that I have just been there I felt I should make another sample.
So I took a hard photo to re-create.
I dyed the fabric to similar to the background of this photo. It's not exactly the same but it gives me a base.
Trace the pattern
create the leaves.
Begin the texture the leaves
I draw the veins on with a lead pencil.
I chose not to trace them because I wanted them to be more 'sketcherly.'
I'm using a combination of different mediums to color the leaves.
