I first create a drawing of a Mexican Petunia and then draw an optical illusion that will hopefully work with the flower. I then break each petal up into a design, using large shapes to small shapes and use similar colors as the original petunia. You can see the development as the flower gets colored. The beginning coloring are a different shade of color because they are taken inside the house on sometimes a stormy day, whereas the final pictures are taken in the sunny outside lighting. Also photos never look as good as the quality of the art piece.
