I draw this in with a Graphic pencil. it's not drawn in as heavy as it looks. I increased the contrast so that you can see the drawing better.
It's on 11 x 8 inch paper,
It's from a exercise on one of Rod's CD-Rom.
I did not trace it. I draw it in by hand. Changed the composition a bit as well.

Ok here's the next stage.
I kind of gone my own way with this one.
Don't know if it will work, only one way to find out, decided to use more of a autumn leaf.
You will notice that I have also used INK with a dip pen.

I mucked it up.
It was going well till I attempted the background.
I have put it under the tap & washed off most of the color.
will get back to it, tomorrow.
Still not very good at mixing colors. Need more practise.
I could not find a color that matches the painting. Tried lots, evatually it just went all mucky.
I think it might be best if I started another one.
Oh well it was good practice. They say the best way to learn is from your mistakes.:D
Still disappointed though. I suppose it is the first flower I have ever attempted to paint. so should not expect to much.
This sure is a challenge.
Got another lesson tomorrow morning, I will ask the art teacher for some advice.:)

Looking forward to seeing your next attempt take shape....DON'T GIVE UP!
I usually wet the area I am going to pain first and then "drop" colours into that, that way some steer into one another and I can create 5/6 colours with just 3, it also helps the colours remain clear and transparent rather than mixing first and then ending up muddy. Backgrounds can ruin a wondeful piece or make it, I suggest you practice a little just with those.
I actually fine the b/g the most fun part of the painting, usually 'cos I work on quite detailed pieces I guess and they allow me to play around a little!
Good luck on your next piece!
