After signing the contract to the house for next year (Yippee!), myself and a few friends got together and made our way to the winter gardens. After spending all that time on the art of nesting and designing possible designs for them (just to have them not be useful because I didn’t want to storyboard that part of the story), I felt it was time to explore the landscape and leaves now that I have a clearer idea of what I want my final outcome to look like.
These are a series of sketches I did of the leaves, with some added ones that are more illustrative and designed.
After walking around the Winter Gardens sketching the variety of plant life, I then went around again with my camera and took photographs of plants and “landscapes” for reference when I design my own backgrounds.
