Queen Ann's Lace

Welcome to the Queen Ann's Lace wildflower portrait lesson! By the end of the lesson you will be able to create your own portrait using your own drawing. I love this project because it took me less than 40 minutes and I had a lot of fun using a pastel color palette.

 Mindset TIP: Remember to focus on breaking plants down into basic shapes rather than getting overwhelmed by their complexity.
