Licorice Plant & Petunias

On to a new project today.  Actually I’ve been drawing this one for a couple of days.  Who knew that drawing basically round flower shapes could get so complicated?  Wait a minute. I did! Been there before!
  This one is about 13 X 21″.   I drew the flowers and the foliage around them, and now I’m slopping on a wash of yellow-green.  It’s very loose and wet & I’m hoping it’ll have some interesting texture…even though I’ll probably paint over most of it.  Painting on 140lb Fabriano (rough).  Love this paper for florals because it’s so white, and because of it’s toughness and it’s beautiful texture.
