My idea was a single flower showing geometric unity. The periwinkle has a wonderful form based on a pentagon. My first attempt was very wish washy. The periwinkle was so vivid I wanted to strengthen its colour, but ended up making the colours strong but dark. So then I had to keep darkening and darkening the leaves and background to try to make the flower stand out until finally I ending up scribbling all over it and nearly throwing it in the bin. I’m feeling pretty despondent about my lack of progress in this medium. I look back over what I’ve done and see very little improvement, more like losing my touch. Oh dear šŸ˜¦
