The course project

For your class project, I want you to experiment with a variety of plants and try atleast 4 different compositions:

Single Plant Stem - This is a very easy and simple composition that always looks good. 

Flower - Flowers print really interesting in the sun. You can get a variety of shades and shapes. 

Bouquet/Collage - This is a fun way to get a really interesting piece with a lot of different texture and design. 

Pattern - Use leaves or flower petals to create a pattern.

Have fun with it! Prepare several pieces of paper so you can try a bunch of different compositions. When you complete your project, upload it to the "Your Project" tab so I can see what you created! I hope you enjoy this project and have some lovely new art for your home! In the words of the great Bob Ross, "there are no mistakes, just happy accidents".
