Working it up with more detail, adjusting colours and shades to give it more dimension, and finishing all the flowers.

I’m glazing the foliage with blue and yellow, depending on their hue.

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!

I’ve been remiss in posting. Crazy, busy couple of weeks.

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…
