Two Flowers - step 3

I began on the two flowers today. I'm not particularly satisfied with the result. I keep catching myself using watercolor techniques (such as working light to dark) which totally don't work in acrylic. I'm considering switching to water miscible oils for this because I'm not getting the smoothness of line I want. (Maybe I'm just not proficient enough.) I love the luminescence of oil and the transparency of watercolor - neither of which I've been able to achieve in acrylic. We'll see what develops as I move along.
