Finished Hydrangea

Finished Hydrangea - student project

This project was very fun and challenging for me.  I do not usually paint this "tightly" with so much detail.  I usually prefer loose and expressive flowers.  The blending techniques took a lot of practice and I feel I got better at it the more petals I did.  I do not like how rough the edges of the petals are.  I was using a very toothy paper and I wonder if hot press paper would lend a cleaner edge.  I do want to try this again and see if I can improve.
