Big poppies - work in progress

Back to the Beginning? This is taking a while.

I went to a larger size paper (about A3) and painted the first layer with a big mop brush and it was a lot of wet-in-wet fun.

 But when it all dried, I added a glaze and it looked a little one-dimensional
So I decided to carefully add glazes over different parts of the flowers to give them more oomph. Now I need to reclaim some highlights and definition, and also to make the seed pods more architectural and less cartoony. And I'm really not sure about that brigh green. But we're getting there. And then I'll be ready to move on.
