The second image shows the final painting. I added a light gray wash to make the shading caused by the sides of the bowl, but I was not patient and did not wait for my prior paint application to dry. Patience, patience, patience! Alternatively, I could have applied the gray at the very beginning of the painting process, but I worried my pinks would be muddled. Well, muddled they are. Paint and learn.
