Large flower in Flemish technique.
Hi. This is my first attempt at making a painting using the Flemish technique.
I have been following the tutorial from the pdf course I purchased earlier.
I didn't want to reproduce the still life but I was keen to try a large flower.
I started working from a photo of a peony. Can't remember where I got it from but my painting ended up quite different from the original.
The problems I encountered were mainly not spending enough time doing the dead layer. I think it was mostly 2 shades of grey with a few touches of lighter and darker but definitely needed more work.
So the colour (color for you there) layer was hard to define the shapes.
More practice needed.
