Funky Flower Painting

Recently, I have been sketching mandalas.  I decided to experiment and use that kind of style and draw a flower to paint.  

The canvas is stretched in an embroidery hoop.  I painted the background first, then I freehand drew on top of the canvas.  Now that I've done it, I think I rather sketch on drawing paper better than on the painted canvas.  The painted canvas is not as as smooth as I'd like it to be.  I then went with permanent markers to add some color and then on top of that with more acrylic paint.  It was a fun experiment and I think it came out cute! 

Feel free to email me and let me know what you think!
