I got my fake flowers and a lamp to be my fake sun and sat down to paint.
I wanted a light blue wall behind the flowers to really make them stand out.
I started with the vase - no roughsketching or mapping it out - I just started.
I like how the orange really contrasts with the blue - it really pops out. I wasn't afraid to lay the paint on thick. I don't know what it is lately, but I am liking the thick paint. It feels almost like I am sculpting with paint.
Ooops - I skipped a few steps here.
Added the last details - the shadow and little highlights.
