I have blocked-in the flowers of my 36 x 48 inch canvas in a rudimentary way.  It has a “Matisse à Nice” kind of feeling in this early stage of painting.  Everything is thinly painted.  Everything is just “there” enough to suggest the composition as a whole, and yet I have lots of room in which to wiggle.

This is a wonderful stage for a painting — where there is a chance for firmness in the initial drawing and yet still so much opportunity to dream.
