Botanical with a flair
Jane LaFazio here. I had so much fun with this page! First, I'm working in a larger journal than usual--it's like 9x12". I drew from real life, as always, from snippets of a Eucalyptus leucoxylon 'rosea' (White Ironbark) down the street.
As I drew each part of the flower, pod, leaf, I also did some pattern drawings, inspired by the real things. FUN! I plan to use these patterns in my other artwork somehow. Like I do my the 4th chapter of my DVD (or download) 'from art journaling to art.'
