Brush in the dark over the pre-toned panel. If you like the abstract design of light and dark at this stage you will most likely enjoy the final painting. Of course, if you don't like the design at this stage of your painting there is little that can help you later when you start adding detail. Better to begin again than waste a lot of time.
Darks and lights, darks and lights. I should have a parrot in the studio trained to squawk at me and keep me from going into detail too soon.
I began adding the flowered print on the backdrop. It stole the spot light from the focal point so I removed it.
This is the last of the series. I could go on and on but there are so many flowers blooming now and I don't want to miss any of them. What a great problem to have. How many people in this world get to wake up and say to themselves "What beautiful thing should I look for today?"
