I like this but I would like to learn how to do more layering, as the flowers look 'flat' and do not overlap much. I'm hoping that gets covered in the following lessons. CA poppies were deceptively hard to do- I feel like I could have done them better, it was very difficult gauging how much water should be on the page to allow enough spread without over-pooling the pigments. Maybe my pigments are at fault?  I would love some tips! :)
