Some paintings are a breeze to paint. This was not one of them. Took forever. Some people just suggest a flower petal with one stroke. Me, I've gotta do it the hard way....outline the shape, put on base color, create the shadow, blend, highlight, rework, blend some more. One of these days I'll learn to paint faster.
