Complete the foreground flowers, boosting their color as necessary in relation to the background foliage. Use a sharpened crayon for finer detail.

Using sea blue, make parallel horizontal lines to indicate the distant sea. Draw the lines darker and more closely spaced toward the foreground.

Use a wetted medium sable brush to release color from the crayon marks. Work only on the red and magenta flowers that occupy the foreground. The color release intensifies and adds complexity to their forms.
