Looking for Sunshine


Here, it is cold. No snow, but dreary and cold, so I am looking for sunshine in my art.

I started with the leaves, creating one from the grid and duplicating, resizing, and placing them around the grid.

I then created the flower, duplicating and resizing its base to create a more detailed, layered flower placed with the leaf pattern.

Next, I added the stem and the seed pods.

Then I added the square and circle backgrounds, adding in gradients– darker at lower right to bright sunshine on upper left.

Finally, I created the border with the elements already created.

Here you can see the leaf and flower planning:


Next, I plan next to add a little interest with some details, probably for the leaves.

What do you think?

Here’s a close-up:


As you can see, I found some sunshine!
