First marks of paint for the flower study. I set up the still life somewhat late in the day and didn’t begin painting until quite late. Here’s how it looked on the first pass. It’s really fun to begin flowers this way. From the outset, there’s a riot of color.
This is the beginning of the first of what will be several studies of flowers for a large flower painting that I’ve just begun on what was formerly the beginnings of a koi painting (a couple posts previous).
My studio looks like a gypsy caravan these days.
