6 .With the edge of the brush and Burgundy loaded on it, shadow along the top of the petal where the calyx will attach.  (see video for clarification)

7. With the tiniest touch of burgundy mixed with orange, use the chisel edge of the brush to pull in some lines for texture.  I also sometimes do this with a touch of yellow, depends on my mood.
