Chrysanthemum – vector illustration

Chrysanthemum – vector illustration done with Inkscape.
Ulla Hennig November 2013

I had a photo reference which showed lots of chrysanthemums, and I decided to create a stylized piece with inkscape. Up to that point I hadn’t much experience with gradients in Inkscape, but applying gradients one petal a time taught me a lot about it.

The final step was to export it as bitmap which created a png file and combine the flower with the appropriate background in photoshop. I finally chose the colour black because I wanted the flower to pop out.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
