Silk shading day 7/8

Another day at home and I managed to finish off the leaf and add the lime/yellow highlights to the flower spathe.

  3. I think it is coming together, and you will have learnt so much from it. The leaf was probably easier, partly because you were coming to it fresh, and partly because you didn’t have to deal with the green-to-red shading. It takes a lot of concentration to do something like this.
