This is what the painting was before I decided to paint it over.
I have been working on it for a long time, but I just wasn't satisfied with it.
So I thought I would give it a new life.
First I made a sketch
Then I made the diamond background with two blues.
A dark and a much lighter one.
I sketched the motives onto the background with white pencil,
and then started painting.
After some time I realised the background wasn't working.
So time to change it.
The background covered, almost.
Decided to keep some of the background.
The Iris is not right. It has already had 3 different colours.
The positioning of the flowers are also wrong.
But, it is all practice, and I like practice:)
