Didn't get to the Christmas Card class, but did work on this at home. Did a large painting on my Arches paper, with a couple of washes on the background first. Did several washes on the flower itself and then went back in when dry to refine the colors. Starting adding darker background around flower drying in between layers. Ordered it from Shutterfly. Back has a couple of photos of Charlie and me from our summer trip. I like the way it came out.
