” Together is our favorite place to be “
I was looking for a lovely-homely sort of quote. I wanted to draw something that I could use as decor in the living room. This quote gave me exactly the kind of feeling I was looking for. Sharing below the progress pictures of the floral quote design.
I started with the outline. I find hand lettering really hard, especially when it comes to making the words fit within the required space. I don’t practice it enough so there’s always the need for an eraser. After a lot of thinking I decided to go with calligraphy. Easy to draw and looks pretty too.
Filling up the negative space is actually easier. Instead of zentangle patterns this time I decided to go with floral designs. I wanted to see how the quote artwork would look.
Floral Quote Design – Progress Pictures
It took me many many nights to finish as I would usually draw a little after dinner. Drawing can be very therapeutic and I felt really good when I could draw a little after a long day.
I go through so many emotions while drawing, especially at the beginning. Sometimes I marvel at my patterns, and sometimes I doubt myself if the end result would look okay. I keep telling myself to trust the process. Just keep going till the end. I know many artists go through the same. The starting and middle part of the journey is filled with doubts and concerns over lines and colors. But only when you are near the end of the journey do you get to see how those lines interconnect to form the full picture.
Trust the process.
