Unchartered Waters

So my mom thought that I should try my hand at china painting. I tried pansy to begin with because that is what I had to look at. Mom then told me that is the hardest flower to start with, go figure.

Anyway, this is the first go at the pansy. I have to put leaves on the plate and other green fill in, then it can be fired for the first time. Mom says for china painting, you fire two to three times. So you start light and work up to the dark, because you can always goes darker, but you can't go lighter.

So what do you think? Double click to see a bigger picture. Can you tell they are supposed to be pansies?
