Blueberry Pattern. Step-by-step
Lately I caught a lot of inspiration from nature and painted a lot. If I were asked what I could draw in any mood, with any materials and regardless of payment, I would definitely answer that these are greenery, plants, flowers and floral patterns.
And I want to share with you one of my process.
That's how it was. Step-by-step
- Usually the idea of the illustration comes spontaneously when I see something looking gorgeous. Once upon a time, my family and I were in the forest. There was the very beginning of the blueberry season. Berries were everywhere
- I chose a beautiful twig and bring it home to use as a model for my illustration.
- I took a big sheet of paper and drew the pencil sketch. I thoroughly studied every leaf and berry in the twig. My lines were quite saturated and redrawn many times in some places.
- The sketch needed to be transfer to watercolor paper. Usually I do it on a window.
- I pinned my paper on the tablet, set on the easel and began to paint.
- There was a super enjoyable and meditative process.
- I was painting for 1-2 hours for several days.
- Almost finished, only berries left to paint.
- I came up how to paint easy but berries looked juicy and realistic.
- I really like how the illustration looks like. And appreciate the warm memories of one summer day that are stored in it.
