I found a dried up old rose and I first took the petals, dipped them in paint, wet the canvas, put the plastic back on and then shook! This was just to get my base shape and composition. I then took the actual rose along with stem and imprinted that with paint all over the canvas, I then created many layers of the flower in the center point until I finally left it alone after a few months lol. Whoops yes it sometimes takes me that long to finish my art. Working on this part of my artistic ideas. Finally touches were a yellow pop of color to offset my abstract textured color heavy painting.
