Day 24: Franklin Park Conservatory

Big thanks for setting this up!  I don't have a whole lot of experience sketching foliage, but I do enjoy it.  It was also nice to do something a little more illustration-esque (see the little figure down in the lower right?).

There's something kind of "old" looking about it though, but I know that's not a "bad" thing...

  1. Kirsten,
    Great work - You're definitely a 'noodler.' Always be aware of this - it's definitely a strength for an illustrator (just be mindful of it).I like how you developed the foliage along the large trunk - it creates a wonderfully shaped vignette. Limiting the noodling and juxtaposing it with a more sparse area can create a strong design.
