Feeling Floral

I'm using the first technique, the dropped flowers...I haven't tried the others yet! I really liked the loose look this method gives and the freedom to just let the colors bleed on their own. It takes some of the pressure off to make it look perfect!

I did a quick sketch of some flowers in a photo arrangement I found to get a feel for the shapes.

I was a little too eager to practice, so I jumped right intoa bouquet to see how it would go. I'm going to practice it a bit more. I think I should have let some of the flowers dry first so they didn't bleed into each other quite as much, but I like the look it acheived. I wanted the leaves to be colorful, but tried to skew them more to a blue range to go with the more blue tones in the flowers. Here's the first shot after it was mostly done.

Then I added some more depth and detail after it had dried:
