You have a beautiful reference. You have made a good start on your drawing. Keep layering colours and you will end up with vibrant colours and a beautiful work of art.

Re: wip. African violets

Lisa....just keep adding color. Layering is just the act of adding a light layer of color....not too much pressure....do it again....not much pressure....do it again...not much pressure...you will see the color begin to saturate and get deeper. Very good start and a beautiful reference photo. Keep working at it....you got this.

Re: wip. African violets

You have done a very nice drawing. As to layering, I would try different color combos on a scrap sheet of paper to see what looks good and what doesn't look good. I might try colors such as magenta in the middle of flower and maybe a blue towards outer rim of flowers. And remember to go lightly with your layers. If it is not exactly like picture but looks good, that is okay, you are the artist.

Re: FINISHED----African violets

Turned out well. Did you try using colourless blender over the top. That usually helps to eliminate the little speckles of white paper showing through.
