I’ve started kicking around some initial composition ideas for my primrose (Primula vulgaris). HB pencil and tracing paper, cutting up pieces I like and repositioning them until something clicks. Redrawing and redrawing. That’s how it starts. It’s messy but it’s also freeing since there is no risk at this point. This is how the sausage is made! Starting to like it but many more iterations to go, plus lots of feedback from instructors, fellow students, friends, etc.
