WIP-Second Update- Past Their Prime

12 Feb

I have been working on this painting exclusively for over a month now. (Does it count as a diversion if this weekend I drew out two full sheet of mussel shells?  shhhh!)

And am pretty excited with my progress. I have done quite a bit of tweaking as I go along. I added in an other bloom at the bottom of the bouquet- the composition just “needed” it.  I decided to leave the concrete bench for now and get back to the flowers.  The drawing and is complex and often requires a bit more concentration than I feel like.  That is why I am moving all over this painting. I plan one finishing the flowers this week.

Focus Helen, focus!

      Four greens – all Windsor Newton- olive green, Sap green , green gold and prylene (spelling?) green. I play with them until I get the combination I need- also – will add paynes grey – if in the shadows….and quin gold to warm them up
