Step 4: Dampen your large shader in water, then blot any excess water from the bristles on a paper towel. Lightly load your brush with the golden yellow. Paint two light coats of yellow to the petals of the flowers. Your first coat will be thin and semi-transparent, the second coat will give it more solidity but you will still be able to see the grain lines of the wood.
Step 5: Load your brush with pale burnt orange, blot it once on a paper towel so that you are carrying a very small amount of paint. Apply the burnt orange to the low side of each petal to create a shadow. Brush over this a couple of times to blend the orange into the yellow areas. Repeat this step with the Cardinal red to deepen the shadow tones where one petal touches another.
