Materials and Supplies:
Sakura Pigma Micron 01 (0.25mm) in Black
Regular pencil (my favorite is the Staedtler F pencil, but it is expensive, you can use any other pencil)
Zentangle tile or hotpressed watercolor paper
Watercolor set in pan or tube: red, orange, yellow, light green and blue. Does not need to be very high end or expensive.
Colored pencils: vibrant red (alizarin crimson), golden yellow (dark chrome yellow), yellow (light chrome yellow), red burgundy or wine (magenta), dark brown (burnt umber), white. I use polychromos for most colors, but for white, use prismacolor, because the waxy pencil offers better covering.
White gel pen. I use Sakura Gelly Roll.
Practice paper (journal or cardstock).
These guidelines will works every time, however, this is an ADVANCED LESSON and is not suitable for beginners.
Add complex tangles to your flower petals, learning the basics of foreshortening
Note: while I show you some tricks on how to use "foreshortening", a technique used to mimic perspective in 3D, this is by no means a precise and exact lesson on perspective. The goal of this lesson is not to create realism, instead, to use leverage foreshortening to create a HIGHLY STYLIZED flower with some 3-dimensional qualities.
