I pre-painted the canvas with acrylic paints to create the design and then finished it with oils using a palette knife to up the texture factor.
This time I made myself create a mother pile of color with warm and cool sub color piles. The value of the warm/cool paint went from dark to light to capture harmonious values.
I used a different photo that captured some foreshortening of the stem.
