March 22, 2010 - Day 224

Ink and watercolor on 320gsm Coventry Rag Vellum watercolor paper

Well this was a lot easier than I anticipated! The flower heads looks so difficult but actually they were really easy to do. I must admit though that I "cheated" on the stems and leaves. I hadn't mixed my green paint strong enough and the color barely showed once it had dried. I decided to paint over top with a darker green. I didn't use the chinese brush technique but rather just held the brush and painted in my normal way. It really made a huge difference in the look of the leaves and stems versus the flowers themselves.
