The first attempt is many times the best. The flowers may be on copy paper and you accidentlay dipped the brush in the wrong color but the magic of the first piece can’t be replicated. I stand by that theory but this flower doesn’t. I mixed a lovely peach and inteneded to paint a Sunflower. What a color. This time I cut the ends of the paper roll with a little more shape, added watercolor with acrylic and just painted.
The exprimental copies that started it all! In the yellow flower I stamped in layers. On another version I used markes to add thin pink strokes of color. There are many possibilities. The possibilites get better and better. Skills do to. Today I wrorte on the topic of just paint. Just painting allows you to work throught the ideas so you can arrive at the peachy petal flower.
