Outlines, Lines and trying something new

I love line drawings and most of my drawing is done in contour line with very little tone.  I also tend to work quickly and dash my work off like it’s some kind of race to be the first finished.  It’s how I work… my style.

But things are taking a little twist.

I’m totally in love with the gorgeous detailed botanical illustrations that come out Longina Philips Design Studio. So inspired by their beauty I’m slowing down and adding in linear shade lines. This is so different from my usual way of working that it’s like learning to draw again. Thankfully the gorgeous designers over at Longina Philips have put together an online course to walk me through their process.

I’m still developing my take on their process but I’m loving the results so far.
