It would be foolhardy to claim that I will ever complete all of the many art and craft classes I’ve signed up for over the last few years, but I am determined to finish at least some of them.
I’ve done five of Sandy Allnock’s classes and am part way through another couple — I really enjoy doing the mini classes that show how to create scenes from scratch with no stamps.
This one was a bit different though, rather than creating scenes, this is all about drawing flowers freehand; five different wildflowers.
My favourites are the thistle and the sweet peas; the thistle because it feels the most representative of the real flower and the sweet peas because they were the hardest to approach — the flowers are so floaty and ill-defined but the technique for creating them works.
There is a second wildflowers class but I think I’ll try and get one of the part-finished classes completed first.
