This is a repeat of the Giant Alium step-out. I’ve updated the text, added a Close-up Alium step-out, a new example painting, and a video.
Giant Aliums are fun because they are essentially colorful fuzzy balls on long sticks with triangular leaves.
In the distance, you can’t see that aliums are made up of tiny petals, which I’ll call florets.
If you want to increase your sense of distance, use the Close-up Alium for the nearest flowers and then leave the other flowers solid, with a little shading to indicate roundness.
Or just make it easy and have all your flowers solid with shading.
Artwork: Zebra Pen Funwari Color brush, Zensations colored pencil and Derwent White Graphik Line Painter in a Stillman & Birn Beige-Tone sketchbook. I do NOT recommend the Graphik Line Painters because they blob.
