So, this week, after pulling my espresso shot for my morning latte I spotted a daisy with swirls around it in the crema - then I took a photo - as you do.
I managed to get it drawn up over the past 2 days and thought I would show the stages from inspiration to finished drawing:
Coffee shot - you may have to use your imagination - but I see a large round petal daisy in the centre surrounded by swirly leaves.
Sketch up - this is a little hard to see but it's my rough sketch inspired by the coffee photo.
Finished design - detail added/removed to balance the design. I debated whether to shade at all, but decided on just a touch to add some depth.
At one stage, just after the initial line work, I really wasn't loving it - it felt unbalanced, but once I played around and added some detail and more elements, I'm happy with the end result and am glad I persisted. Definitely a fun experiment.
Hope your weekend is going great!
