I am starting a new series called “Graphic Flowers”, I will work on it for a week using watercolors and post every two days my work on Instagram @studioerd2018.
I am starting to work with watercolors and thought this would be a fun way to tackle this paint.
What am I doing?
First, I am creating a series of watercolors backgrounds this will let me have a 1st feel of the ratio paint versus water that I am not used to, before I start doing any pieces.
Then, once I have all my backgrounds down, I will scan them and create flowers on Inkscape (please do not sigh).
Inkscape may not be the MUST of the MUST for illustration but for a beginner like me having a free and most importantly easy to use software available is GOLD! So, shout out to the Inkscape team and thank you!
