Let's Draw Flowers!

Welcome to ‘Shayda’s Intro to Floral Illustration', the online course where we'll dive headfirst into the enchanting world of flowers and leaves with a touch of humor and a whole lot of creativity.

You know those moments when you're just staring at a flower, and you're like, "Wow, nature, you're showing off again!" Well, we're here to capture those "wow" moments with pens and paper.

I've always been that person who can't resist sketching a leaf or doodling a bloom on the back of a napkin (anyone else?), and I've turned that obsession into an art form. In this course, I'm going to spill all my secrets on how to make flowers and leaves come to life on paper.

We'll start from the absolute basics because, hey, even the greatest artists were once stick figure aficionados. I'll show you how to pick the perfect pens, create textures that'll make you want to reach out and touch your drawings, and add depth and dimension that'll make your botanicals pop.

But it's not all about being a serious art student here. We're going to have a blast experimenting, finding your unique artistic style, and even doodling! Whether you're an art wizard looking for new tricks or just someone who wants to bring a little more beauty to your journals, this course is for you.

As we journey through the course, we'll tackle all sorts of botanical beauties, from dainty dog roses to the queen, protea. You'll leave this course with a portfolio of stunning illustrations that'll make your friends go, "Wait, you did that?!"

So, if you're ready to unlock your creative superpowers and get up close and personal with the world of botanical illustration, grab your pens and join me! Can't wait to see your masterpieces!
