Bird of Paradise Flower #2 (Experimenting)

Bird of Paradise Flower #2 (Experimenting). This is an experiment--I sprayed flat black acrylic paint on the paper of a 5 x 8 Moleskine, opened up to 8 x 10 size (2-page spread) and painted the same bird of paradise flower that I did earlier with pigment markers. It is done in gouache, and I'd say it's a failed experiment, but interesting anyway.

The gouache did NOT work well on this paper. It looks more like acrylic, but doesn't cover as well. Because of the reflective nature of the scanner, it looks MUCH brighter than it actually does in the mole itself.
