Dark Magnolia

Dark Magnolia - student project

I had a lot of fun painting this! This was the first time I've used my gold ink. I found the dark background challenging to achieve because I have more pan set colors than tubes or other more concentrated forms. I think next time I do a dark background I'm going to use the technique of wetting a larger section of paper than I'll paint to avoid a hard edge. Trying to paint quickly and precisely is not my strength.
