Flowers in full-bloom are so lovely, I love them.
But leaves might still be the leading part by their thick energetic reassuring appearance.
I sometimes paint in advance only the shadow as undercoat of painting. I make the color mixing some colors. This time I made reddish brownish gray.
These shading affect coating.
Though I have to be very careful to use this technique, I like and enjoy it. I am so curious and love trying new things.
