Flower update



I've added more layers to the flower and its starting to get a bit more definition.   The art board is a little odd and sometimes seems grainy when you lay down the paint but then dries to a smooth velvety finish which I quite like.

I can't quite get the colour on this here.  Its a richer pink in real life.  Perhaps daylight will be kinder.

This is beautiful. I love big paintings of flowers, macro versions making them more abstract than just flowers in a vase. Very nice work on this - love the darks, too.
