I drew these flowers on canvas.
I got this far, then I stopped. I wasn't sure where to go next in terms of colour. When I went back to it, something was bothering me but I didn't know what.
While working on the flower pot I realized that the yellow of the flowers was bothering me. Much as I liked the muted, chalky look, it wasn't working for me. So I added another, brighter, shade of yellow and some magenta mixed with white.
