Managed to paint a little more this evening. Since I don't have a drawing, I am getting a bit confused with the petals. I am basically painting wet on dry and I have to be pretty sure where the brush stroke should be placed and how light the color needs to be. The colors can easily be darkened but it is much more difficult to lighten reds and purples. This is going to be a painting that will take some time to complete so maybe I'll paint some pears too just so I can get a little crazy with the paint and not have to be so cautious.
