band of roses

clump of roses oil pastel 11x14

I am redrawing things that are in the painting, reconnecting myself with individual parts of the motif to get myself ready to continue working on it, stitching the parts more securely together — or preparing to do so — since the real discoveries will happen on the painting’s own surface.  These are just ideas.

So I redrew the roses and then added the top of the clump of hydrangeas below these roses, just to help myself think about some ways that these two parts might connect.  These are the hydrangeas that I drew in the previous post.  The drawing measures 14 x 11 inches and depicts the flowers actual size.

Here’s the whole painting in its present form:

The roses and the hydrangeas are located in the top left hand side.
