Most of us buy or bought our Tombow Dual Brush Pens to become incredible lettering artists and make millions off of freelance artwork. Am I right?
Okay, maybe cross out the making millions part. But, the most well-known purpose of the Tombow Dual Brush Pens is for modern calligraphy and lettering. Today, I’m going to blow your mind… maybe. I’m going to show you how to use your Tombow Dual Brush Pens to create an easy floral wreath that takes under 15-minutes!
Easy Floral Wreath with Tombow Dual Brush Pens
- Compass or something round that you can trace. This is my compass and it’s been amazing!
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens in 3 different colors. I’m using (772, 245, and 192)
- Fineline pen with a very small nib. I’m using the UniPin 01.
- Use your compass to draw out a 3.5-4″ circle on your paper in pencil.
- Next, use your blush colored Tombow (772) to create a large circular blob on one side of the wreath. Then add some soft triangles and teardrop shapes above and below the circle you just drew. These are where your blooms will be. The circle will be a full bloom and the triangles will become buds and upward facing florals.
- Now, use your lighter green color (192) to add some long leaves coming from the main flower. To do this, start with very light pressure to create a thin line and then as your draw your leaf push harder to create a thick section. Then at the end of your leaf, lift your pressure to come back to a thin point.
- Go in with your darker green Tombow (245) and add some shorter, wider leaf shapes coming from the main bloom.
- Pick up your light green again and start making those long leaf shapes around the circle you drew with your compass. Overlap and underlap them as you go.
- Pick up your fineline pen and start filling in the details of your blooms and adding in the stems for your budding flowers. If you want to take your floral drawings to the next level and learn how to draw the flowers in this wreath, you can enroll in my e-course, Petite Floral Doodles. It has over 3 hours of video tutorials, including petal and leaf shapes, individual florals, wreaths, laurels, and floral arrangements.
- Finally, add a single fine line with your pen coming from the starting point of each leaf and drawing it about half-way up the leaf. Then, erase your pencil marks and you’re done.
