Nasturtium - student project

Nasturtium - image 1 - student project

Another practice in my newbie painting state. Still looks flat. I think the paper must not be dry enough for the next layers since they look flat again. I should have left well enough alone and not include the leaves-the flower looked better without them. I was mixing the greens but they sure look unnatural. I was trying to paint the leaf behind but don't think that really comes across. I enjoyed the class Anne. Suggestions are always welcome, I am a beginner and am practicing to improve.
