Below is a start of a painting with the thinking that some of this texture and colors of the paper might show through. Oh how things change!
I have added the Wood Icing Texture on the pot and added my darks for the background leaves. Again--Oh how things change!
I was first thinking blue for the background then I didn't think I liked it so...
I changed the background. But then something bothered me about this. Still I didn't
know about what colors the flowers would be.
