I realized I had been using the "extreme" brush the whole time, when I think I would have rather had more subtle color changes. This looked almost neon to me and I don't love the colors. I changed the colors a bit below and I like it a little better, but it still isn't my favorite. A learning experience!
I think color palettes are something I really struggle with. Something to work on in my next works!
This was fun, but challenging. I LOVE flowers but definitely underestimated how difficult they can be to draw and paint.
