flora

For my Drawing and Textures Tools class I was assigned to illustrate seven objects from observation on Adobe Illustrator using the pen tool and only straight lines. Illustrating flowers and other plant foliage from photo references, I explored the use of geometric shapes and how they can be layered to replicate a flower's organic shape and delicate texture. I also investigated how color created depth and form within each study. Below are three of my studies from the assignment.
