This month’s assignment theme for the Make Art That Sells ecourse is ‘Roses’ so I wanted to start off by keeping the shapes simple.
I used gouache paints thinned slightly with water and painted some simple flat 2d shapes. Once dry, I then started adding details over the top of the roses using a white gel pen. This may seem strange to some people, although to me I LOVE pattern and all the intricacies that the lines etc provide. For me, it just makes it more interesting!
Anyway, this is my starting point, so may change as I evolve my design. The plan is to use the roses theme to then create a journal cover. How exciting!!! I cannot wait. I think I would enjoy creating art for the gift market (which includes journals and SO much more…..).
My favourite part shown below…..adding pattern and lines etc with a white gel pen.
Well that’s as far as I have got to date. Follow along with my progress and daily visual inspiration over on instagram here.
I hope to see you there!
