Flowers #2

 
Using my flower vase as inspiration and some of what I learned from the workshop last Sept. I did this still life.  
I photographed it as a WIP .. Funny after you photograph it, you do see all the "what did I do that for?" 
However this is how it came together..  I may do a smaller version for my Etsy shop.  
A light sketch for placements ... the one thing I know is not right, and that's the flower placements.. Trying to get five in there. 
Putting the second wash .And for those who think I don't get messy.
 
I do like the color, the setup, everything about it .. the looseness, 
BUT composition was wrong from the start... sooo, I'll do it again and pay more attention to that very first step.
I'll hang this in my bedroom because it makes me happy to look at it.

  4. This is a gorgeous painting BJ and I love the warm summery colours. It's great to see how you approach such paintings but you think that's messy ... you see my workspace. LOL.
