  3. Shade the petals of the flower using Purple Grape, leave the mixing chamber on the brush nib for about 5 seconds and then colour from the tip of the petal towards the centre, repeat this process until all petals have been coloured. This adds depth, dimension and highlights giving a lighter shade to the tips of the petals.

  4. Colour the stem with Olive Green, add the mixing chamber for 3 seconds to the brush nib and then work from the right side to the left of the stem.  This will make one side darker and give the appearance of depth.
