I had already started another flower painting and needed to finish this up. After that last project of pastel colors, peach, turquoise, and violet, and I had to delve into some bold orange, read and pink bold colors.
A few more close up photos. I have got to have texture in my paintings. This was the first time I used modeling paste and black gesso on the canvas before I put in paint colors on it.
After the paste and gesso dried, I dribbled paint on the surface adding another layer of texture. After all that had dried, then I began using paint.
