I could have named this experiment in yellow. I was trying for a low keyed painting in yellow without getting my colors all muddy. For me the shadows of yellow objects are a tricky business.
My white marigolds still have some life in them. I think I managed the yellow shading. Now to add in the detail work.
I thought the spice jar was a great base for the white marigolds. The flowers actually look more like chrysanthemums than marigolds, which is the design on the spice jar.
