I first drew the image on my paper and then wet it and stretched it–a process I usually do in reverse.
|Since I had the drawing and the paper was wet, I decided to drop some color in and then I waited for it to dry.|

|I started to approach this with negative painting to give some definition to the flowers|
|I was really interested in the vein of the leaf, the petals of the small flower|
|To finish, I just added some more darks for detail.|
