I was nervous about starting, but I have begun putting the bouquet of flowers into the Big Painting. They take up a lot of space and occupy the central most part of the canvas so I know I need to broadly determine their forms first.
In the beginning I just locate them in generalized shapes. Later I have to paint individual flowers — or more accurately, I have to include the smaller, individual patches of paint.
I was nervous, but I’m over the jitters. Now it’s just paint, paint, paint.
