I tried to keep the girl very soft. I decided to use several tones of yellows, oranges, reds and browns using my designer paper as a jumping off point. I painted the image and let it dry and then painted shadows and outlines to give a more dimensional appearance to the image.
I used two different colors on the grass to try and give it a bit more depth. I brushed on Old Olive to start and then outlined all the stems of the flowers with Garden Green. I then used a more watered-down version of Garden Green to wash over random areas of grass.
Three nieces and three very different cards.
