Beyond them, however, I would never insult Mother Nature by even attempting to copy her handiwork. The satiny layers of a rose, the three-dimensional daffodil, the shadings of a pansy are well beyond the scope of my artistic ability.
With pencil and paper that is. What I don't know is what I might be able to manage using image editors. This notion sparked my curiosity and I decided to spend a little time seeking out some tutorials. What I discovered has inspired me and I'm eager to see if it might be possible to turn this doodler into a bit of an illustrator. One copying another's work, perhaps, but ready to start somewhere.
Here then are links to a number of tutorials I found for creating flowers, some for beginners, some more advanced. And should it prove to be too daunting I can always go back; I even found a step-by-step showing how to put pencil to paper and draw a variety of flowers.
