You know – at first glance this looks pretty fabulous. But it isn’t. The stark contrast between the dark background and the white petals is doing most of the heavy lifting here. The detail just isn’t cutting it.
But that’s ok. This is a style I have never painted in before and fancied having a go at. I rapidly found I didn’t really know what I was doing. Have I learned anything? No, not really. It’ll take a few days before I can work out what needs to change.
