Outline The Edges And Begin The Shadows

Fill in the center of the flower with Canary Yellow using circular pencil strokes. Once the Canary Yellow layer is complete, overlap it with Limepeel on the upper side of the flower's center. Along the left side, overlap the Canary Yellow with Magenta. This will accentuate the center of the flower.

With Magenta, begin outlining the petals. Look for areas that are extremely dark and areas that are lighter, and use thinner lines and less pressure in the light areas. Lightly fill in some of the shadow areas with Magenta to begin the look of overlapping petals.
