Floral Wreath

In late 2020, I began an online course called ‘Watercolour Florals for Graphic Design’ by designer Teela Cunningham. I wanted to improve my watercolour painting skills and learn more about assembling floral arrangements. As part of this course, I learned how to create a floral wreath in Photoshop. See the example at the end of this post.

To create the floral wreath, I painted various watercolour flowers and foliage. Then, I scanned all the paintings at 600 dpi. I imported the paintings into Photoshop to enhance the colour and remove the white backgrounds. Finally, using freehand references, I arranged some of the florals and foliage into a wreath with Photoshop.

I enjoyed creating the wreath and love the final result. It was also a great opportunity to merge my traditional and digital design skills to create something girly and inspired by nature. To buy this design on various products, check it out on Redbubble.
