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!
