Hi guys, I hope you are very well, after months of absence, I came back with this post, I will not extend much more, so, let's start.
I will be showing you photos of the process of making this map of Venezuela, talking about how it was, some time I will tell you how I felt doing it, do not get bored right now, it is still missing.
Starting from here where I show you the initial sketch, let me say that it does not look good at all but I think you can see a slight violet color, to make the figure of the map of Venezuela, look for a map on the internet and mark it on a computer monitor, since I must admit that it was difficult to draw it with a pure eye and fist.
Ah, I was forgetting to tell you that this drawing was a request, if I can be honest, I will tell you that I was not very excited to do it, not really; the orchids were one of the parts of that drawing that I liked the most, I liked to play with the colors purple, pink and blue to give shadows and highlights to the petals of each of the orchids.
Continuing with the drawing, I began to do the exterior of the orchids, I decided to make the map as if it were gold, although the color gave a little more bronze, gave a thin layer of gold to the map and then gave it depth with pencils of drawing and ink pens. I did so around the whole map.
I had an idea to make the colors of the Venezuelan flag with watercolors, but they were a bit strange and it was not very my style, so I discarded the idea, and I began to cut the map of the sheet where I drew it, I did it very carefully with a scissor and an exact one. I advise you not to marry much with an idea, sometimes they don't work at all.
Finish with all the yellow petals, leaving some blank spaces; I thought there was a lot of yellow and it occurred to me to give a little balance to those warm colors with a cold color, such as violet, making violet petals, with mixtures of blues and pinks, again, like those of the orchid.
By the time I had the petals ready, I thought it looked great, I just had to paste the other part of the drawing, when this picture you just saw, I think it looks pretty good in my opinion, you will have your own opinion and I hope you are encouraged to share it with me.
After hitting it, BAM, there is the result, it was almost a year making this drawing, I am sorry to say it, in all sincerity, I felt very lethargic for a long time and I have to admit that I am an innate procrastinator, it is not something that makes me proud but I work on it, believe me.
