I'm so happy to say that the floral worked out really well for me. It was a nice break from the usual stuff and I felt like putting myself outside my comfort zone injected something positive. And honestly, even made me miss what I do more. Working on the floral was challenging though. First challenge was composition. I had absolutely no idea how to approach it in terms of placement, scale, proportions or anything else. I literally had to draw out shapes on the canvas to see how to place things. Decided to go with roses since I felt like they were probably a good starter. In terms of color, I don't think I know how to work with anything but loads of it so that worked out pretty well.
Now that the piece is done and I'm so pumped that it is, I'm unsure as to whether I would want to try my hand at a few more. As beautiful as they are, I feel like I'm aching to go back to my abstracts and play around with them a little. See how I can push myself there. Here's the complete piece and you know I have to photoshop it into this awesome space :)
