Watch me paint…#’s 4, 5, 6

I’m working on a realism piece and have taken snapshots of the process. I’d like to share them with you! This is the phase four, five and six. If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear them… enjoy

I’m really trying at this point to make sure that the lighting is right and that the sunlight through the window is hitting the right parts of the flowers.

I decided that I needed to pull out the flowers from the foliage. I drew in the rest of the detail in the bouquet and began with light washes of a green I made with cadmium yellow and cobalt blue. I can now see the shapes of the flowers!

Forgive the lighting on this one, I hadn’t yet decided to post these.

This piece is 11 x 15, here I’ve done the background and the vase. The flowers and leaves are left white. You can’t see it in the photos but I had drawn the outline, in graphite, of the shadow and the flowers.

more to come…
