Using basically the same techniques of the dots as that in the sunflowers below, this time I am painting lilacs using a little more control. Notice that there is separation between the petals so they won't bleed into each other. The dark at the bottom of the top petal, upper right, was painted once the petals dried. Painting these individual petals will take some time as there are lots of petals in the cluster(s). What will be interesting is painting the large leaves that have a lovely hint of that purple in the shadows.
