Colors and Flowers were proving to be a challenge for me. I was really trying to capture the flowers leaf by leaf and not having any success or fun. There was some degree of accomplishment but the end results were rather 'meh'. Going back in on them didn't guarantee improvement and often I could not be true to the original bouquet as it had wilted....like my inspiration. I ended up going back with a new enthusiasm brought on by the liberation of oil sticks and childlike abandon. I am happy with how my flowers look now, as indicated by the title.
