PROJECTS

A Peek at What We'll Be Working on Together in Class

These projects were designed to build in complexity, from beginner to more advanced techniques, so you’ll be ready to draw and paint any flower or leaf.

PRACTICE ONE

You’ll start with some practice leaves using simple shapes and drawing curved leaves.  This will help gain knowledge of basic leaf shapes and confidence drawing leaves with vein and edge detail.

“I really like this way of starting from a very simple – even geometric – shape and refining gradually the drawing in several steps. It’s very fun, easy to follow along and to reproduce.” 

– Lily Impala

PRACTICE TWO

We’ll cover how to draw multiple petals using simple shapes, practicing edge detail and veining, and using worksheets for extra practice.

PRACTICE TWO

We’ll cover how to draw multiple petals using simple shapes, practicing edge detail and veining, and using worksheets for extra practice.

PRACTICE THREE

Then you’ll discover how to draw a number of centre of flowers from reference photos and understand how to break it down into simple shapes to make it easy to accomplish.

“Love the petals, pistils and leaves practice sheets. Gives a great base for your future drawings to be able to break it down.”

– Lindsay Elissa Coils

PROJECT ONE

Now that you’ve gained confidence and had loads of fun practice, we’ll move on to drawing 5 leaves and botanicals from reference to being to build our final project.

PROJECT TWO

Next up, watercolor!  In this lesson, you’ll start our painting journey and I’ll share my techniques to create beautiful watercolor leaves.

“I love to draw flowers but always preferred simple ones, as I didn’t feel confident to draw ones with lots of petals. I now feel I have a formula to tackle very complex flowers such as chrysanthemums and dahlias which I would never do before the course. This has raised my competence and taken my skills to the next level.”

– Deborah Wainwright

PROJECT THREE

It’s time to bring all your newfound knowledge together and start drawing our final flowers.  You’ll have drawings that can be used on their own as well as a perfect start to our final paintings.

PROJECT FOUR

You’ll expand on the painting classes thus far, use stamps to enhance the watercolor effect and paint a number of flowers that will make up our final project.  You’ll also learn to prep your files so that you can use them multiple times, over and over again.

PROJECT FIVE

And finally, you’ll be able to see all your hard work come together.  You’ll learn how to arrange all of your elements together to create a wonderful working composition.

STUDENT PROJECTS

“I feel like I learned a lot throughout the course. From drawing the circles and making skeleton flowers right to the final watercolours. I’d never used watercolours before but I feel confident enough now to use them again. Kris broke everything down to basics so even if that’s all you tackle you’ll see improvement. It’s clear that Kris knows exactly wh at she’s talking about. Her teaching style is fantastic. I’ve now become obsessed by botanicals. I’m looking at flowers and leaves completely differently. My camera roll is full of them and I just want to draw them all.”

“I’ve taken many online courses and this is one of the best. Kris’s knowledge and skills shine throughout the course, which in turn, builds confidence, that I too can with practice draw and paint competently. I often lose interest once a course finishes, and find myself searching for the next one. This course has been different in that, once I’d completed all the lessons and produced the artwork. I went on to design and complete my own flowers and I’m continuing to do so. Completing this course has laid a foundation for me to work off in producing my designs in my style which I see continuing into the future.”

“I’m loving the course! But as I’m a beginner I decided to go slow and do all the exercises. You can see where I started and how I’m progressing. This class is amazing! I have all her brushes but I couldn’t understand how to use most of them. Particularly the second pack with wireframes. I believe that I will finally be able to do it! So exciting!!!”

“I was definitely hooked by this journey, which has led me on paths that I would probably not have taken on my own. As I went along, I took more and more pleasure in drawing and painting these flowers and leaves, and I’ve been surprised by the result. I intend to continue the practice, and probably to watch some parts of the videos (drawing/painting) again. Thank you, Kris Lauren, for this course.”

“Before this course, I couldn’t count how many times I’ve looked at my Botanical Flowers and felt, hm, something is odd, they look clumsy, but I didn’t know how to fix it. Kris’s course came exactly on time to fix me and elevate me to the next level, this is a must! Kris is extremely generous giving out her knowledge and be ready to gain skills and knowledge others are not covering in their courses.

I followed the course analog using watercolor paper, paints and art liner, because I wanted to focus on drawing and getting botanical shapes right. If you work along all the lessons, you have a great chance to gain academic knowledge the same way as if you would be receiving it at a high cost in art school. Encouraged by Kris’s course, I’ve started to merge my graphic design and layering skills with botanical illustration… After seeing my recent works on Instagram done after taking Kris’s course, a new client has hired me to work on her Botanical Illustration project. I am truly thankful to Kris, that these new skills have helped me to secure the deal.”

A.  In class, I will only be demonstrating using Procreate.  If you want to follow along with me, you’ll need a pressure sensitive iPad, the Procreate App (v. 5.2.5 or newer), and a pressure sensitive stylus (Apple Pencil).  This course can be completed in other drawing programs like Photoshop, Fresco, etc. or you may also use traditional tools, a pen or pencil and watercolor paint if you feel comfortable, but there will be no instruction on how to use any other programs or traditional painting methods.

Q.  I’m a beginner, is this for me?
A.  Yup, I know you can do it!  It’s great if you have a very basic knowledge of Procreate, but I’ve walked through everything step-by-step with beginners in mind.
