Nature-inspired illustrative elements are such a perfect accompaniment to calligraphy. How many times have you wished you could elevate your work with the right combination of florals and foliage, painted confidently and creatively by your own hand?
Too daunting? Let me simplify the process for you with step-by-step demonstrations to guide you to creating your own botanical artwork.
What You'll Learn

- the basics of colour theory, mixing and creating a harmonious colour scheme
- techniques for painting, detailing and creating depth
- composing botanical clusters, collages, and frames
