Project Description

Project 1 - Pick up a flower or a leaf of your choice and start with sketching it and move on to painting it in your own style. You can keep it as realistic as you want or turn it completely abstract. 

Pay attention to the overall shape, how the light falls on it and the way different colors behave with each other. Start with the most dominant color as the base coat and finish by adding required shadows and highlights.
