Thus, flower and plant illustrations are worth using for your next project. Let’s delve deeper into this trendy design, consider the different types of flower illustrations, and find out how to create them.


Floral Design is Everywhere

In modern web design, there are a lot of approaches aimed at following the latest trends. Floral and nature patterns are no exception. If you are fond of floral designs, you should have noticed the prevalence of flower drawings and illustrations in different projects from posters to business cards and website backgrounds.

 

The reasons for such wide popularity of flower painting among web designers may vary, but we will not go into this topic. No matter what it is, the best thing about illustrated flowers being used in web design is that they help to make projects more creative and appealing to a wider audience. What’s even better, designers have recently gained access to new programs like Sketch and upgraded digital pencil tools which allow for creating illustrations in hand-drawn style with ease.

 

Lyrical digression aside, let’s consider where modern designers can use flower illustrations.

  • Flower prints on clothing
  • Website background, headlines, and calligraphy
  • Wedding invitation cards, greeting, and business cards
  • DIY materials
  • Scrapbooks
  • Stationery, phone cases, and book covers
  • Social media and blogs
  • Posters, flyers, website banners, etc.

This is just a small list where the designers can use floral and botanical illustrations. The possibilities are endless — everything depends on your project idea and imagination.


How to Create Flower Illustrations

To create flower illustrations, whether it is classic or vintage design, you don’t need multiple software, additional instruments, and other components. A piece of paper or tablet for drawing (or ready-made template if you have some), scanner, color palette site, and Adobe Illustrator will be enough to work up a beautiful floral design. So, let’s have a look at a simple guide that will help you improve your design skills.

  1. If you don’t have a ready-made template, make sure to draw illustrations on paper first to save some time.

  2. When you are done with a drawing, scan it, save it to your computer, and then import the illustration in Adobe Illustrator. Choose 20% of Layer Capacity and trace the drawing with the Pen tool.

  3. Navigate to any color palette sites (we use Colourlovers.com) to locate the color schemes you like the most. Using the eyedropper tool fill the illustration with color.

  4. To get to the other path, select it and choose another color to fill the path with it. The same applies to all other paths of the drawing.
