trying to see into the future

On the studio floor putting the one canvas atop the other helps me visualize how the bouquet would look in its vase and also anticipates how much space this arrangement will take up in the painting for which these are studies.

They come out bigger than I expected.  So I’m not sure what I’ll do about that, whether I use this motif anyway or maybe make it a little smaller.  The vase is a little farther away than other objects on the table.  I am unsure how much smaller that would make it appear. Will have to wing it, perhaps.

Anyway, I thought this arrangement turned out interesting.
