First paint the flowers a delicate pink, using capucine red, putting it on thinly, and shading with a darker tint of the same-colour. For the stamens use red-brown and put in the dots with yellow. Before putting in the centres, the under tint must be allowed to dry thoroughly. Paint the stems forming the circles with yellow-brown, and outline them with dark-brown No. 4. Use the same colour for the ground
