Pat asked for strong bright blue flowers, so I chose my favorite, cobalt blue. I paint one section of a floret at a time with a blue wash, then dab off where the blue needs to be a little lighter and drop in more c...olor where it needs to be a little stronger. I try to not paint a section that touches one where I have already painted, but as you can see, I messed up on one of these. I had to be very careful to make sure that one did not flow into the other. Even though they are the same color, the dampness from the newer section can cause a "cauliflower" in the older section that is not quite dry.
