Bootcamp wall art

wooden wall art design

I've finished another art piece for Lilla Rogers Bootcamp! I had a lot of fun with this one, and what's funny is I switched gears completely in the middle of this assignment because I didn't like what I was doing at first. Sometimes you just have to follow your gut.

Here's the sketch it came from. Our first exercise was to draw scenes from vintage plates, and I found some Scandinavian style ones I really liked, so I created my own version. Then we were to create a piece of wall art on wood from the design we came up with. Although we were encouraged to paint directly on wood, I cheated a bit and put this together in Illustrator and Photoshop just because my time is limited these days, and I knew I wanted to use this art for other things in the future. I originally had the illustrations on a light background, the darker one kind of happened by mistake just playing around, and I ended up really liking how the colors all popped off of it, so here it is! Yay for happy accidents. 

I can't say enough about Lilla Rogers' MATS and Bootcamp classes, if you're an artist looking for new inspiration, check it out, you won't be sorry!
