first flower study
Beginning with the set up.
You can see my shadow box. I painted the inside with acrylic burnt sienna. The window of my studio is a north window (I am sooooo lucky). It is about 4 ft. away.
No preliminary drawing, just started painting.I brushed in the background with Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine blue.
2hrs into it!
I'm trying hard to match the values and colors. I'm pleased that I have not gone too thick too fast. That is a habit of mine I get into trouble from being in a rush. The drawing is not as acurate as I want to get. Keep practicing!
3 hrs into the day.
You can see the light getting stronger.
To much on the highlights but over all not a bad workout.
Here's the final.
I stopped after 4 hours.
I enjoyed the process on this one. Luckily we have planted several daisies this year, so I'll have more to practice with.
