So here is my Gerbera Daisy Phase 2. It never ceases to amaze me just how many paint layers it takes to express a certain idea. The above close ups show my attempt at creating the fuzzy, busy texture of the middle of a Gerbera, and to do it to my satisfaction, it took at least 5 layers of paint. I think once the painting is done in its entirety, the middle will make more sense (or at least I hope! Lol). Can’t wait to start on those petals!
