I painted this (while watching Carol Burnette reruns) :


It wasn’t at all what I had intended, but at least it stopped looking like a cinnamon roll after a while… and I really liked the colors. I used M Graham’s Terra Rosa (pr101), Daniel Smith’s Carbazole Violet (pv23) and Green Apatite Genuine. On cheap Strathmore Visual Journal paper…  I decided to try something else and came up with this:


Everything was wrong about this except the colors, and the thin fragile looking petals. I added DS Burnt Sienna and Yellow Ochre. I tried again to recreate the fragile petals:


Much better!!! So let’s try again:


Interesting. One more try?


I went to bed after this one, afraid I’d regress if I kept going. Still not what I had pictured, but I like it.
