This project has been different than my others and was a lot of fun to do.
I started by blocking it out in acrylics, which dry fast and and are good to establish the darks and lights and color shapes.
Here I am working on the stems. I am close to being finished. I love the larger size and would like to paint even bigger.
This is the acrylic base layer. In the end I changed the shape of the bud so it was not pointed.
