Painting # 27 features a pink Hibiscus flower. One could go into such great detail with this flower and I even found myself slipping into that mode. All the veins in the petals of these flowers are very defined. You can see where I began to detail the veins in the petal closest. I had to stop and step back . I found my nose was getting closer and closer to the paper. I was able to keep it fairly loose and watery, but might need some darks under one of the petals where it appears more muddy.
Reaching the end of the challenge, #28 is ready to post, but I'll give it another day and try to post it later tonight....
