Human Flower: Gouache Painting and Inking


With AKVIS ArtWork you can imitate different painting techniques. In this example, we want to demonstrate the combination of the gouache painting and pen and ink drawing. To unleash the full potential of these artistic styles, we chose a photo of six girls arranged in a pattern that takes on the form of a flower.
