Day 27 - 30/30 Challenge - White Daisy

White Daisy
Watercolor & Pastel, 6" x 6", $35

Some times the easiest things just don't end up being that easy! A simple white daisy on a green background should be simple and fast and I'll get caught up in no time flat - right? No.
Maybe that simple white flower was too simple and the blurry, green, out-of-focus, and the whole thing was sort of...underwhelming.
I started in watercolor, but added pastel in the background just give it more interest and texture, added a couple of tiny little red ladybugs and "made-up" some texture around the yellow center of the flower. And in the end – I think it's pretty nice.
