Some of the flowers has inspired me so much so I decided to work on them in Photoshop.
I like how simple is this flower. Also the colour bleeding is quite amazing.
I sketched the flower and used Richard technique to work on it. I copied the original flower’s petal colour and insert it in to the drawing petals. I think the outcome looks very Hawaiian.
Then I created a repeat pattern. I was trying to put it on to the original photo but it just didn’t look right. I decided to just create a new repeat on top of the photo, also using the original flower. Then I fought why not add put them together in a very simple repeat pattern.
Another lovely flower. I love the texture of this one. The petals are closed so you can’t see the middle of it.
I actually traced this one so I could get the texture and the petals just right. I love the out come. I decided not to colour it in but only use the outline.
Putting just the outline in straight repeat pattern or in random overlay pattern and them directly on top of the original photograph. I love the outcome! It’s so busy and you can’t really see that it’s the same flower.
My favourite outcome. I cropped the photograph so you can only see the petals up close. The outlines of the drawing are easier to see when there is less going on in the background photo.
A duck! There was a beautiful pond with ducks. I thought I would do something else than flowers.
I created a repeat pattern with the duck from the original photo and then tried putting it in the duck drawing. I was selecting bit by bit and it didn’t look so great so I decided to do a while duck in one. The outcome isn’t so good.
It wasn’t working because of the white background so I decided to make my repeat pattern very busy. It doesn’t look bad but it looks weird.
I dropped the idea of filling in the duck drawing and just focused on creating repeats. I used the drawing and the original photograph to create one repeat. I created exactly the same repeat using the drawing and the original photograph and then used the drawing as a background and the photograph on the top.
I did a more drawings of more flowers. Some on the day when I was at the gardens and some at home.
I chose this flowers because I like how the colour of the petals changes. The first drawing I have done in the gardens, it is a blind drawing drawing. The second one I have done at home from a photograph using a fine liner.
I chose this flower because it kinda looks like fireworks. Quick drawing I have done at the gardens.
I absolutely love this flower and it’s colours. It has faded and it looks so beautiful. A sketch I have done at the gardens.
I like how this flower is actually a collection of a lot of small flowers. Quick sketch I have done at home from a photograph.
