My Illustrative Past: A Few Knot Gardens
As I write my next tutorial, I thought I'd share three of my older illustrations. I painted these three knot gardens over ten years ago, inspired by some images in a vintage garden book (I'm sorry I can't remember where I saw them!).
These were created during my watercolor and ink stage. I drew my images in pencil, applied watercolor (nothing fancy), then, once dry, inked them in. The inking in stage has always been my favorite part. I love adding textures to my illustrations to create contrast and depth. My next post will cover this topic a little more...so hold onto your seat. Until then, take a peek into my illustrative past...
