more flowers in the bouquet

bouquet study june 5

I’ve been slowly adjusting the bouquet for the Big Painting.  Still more to do, but here’s an updated version of the picture that I posted previously —

I added the yellow to better match the color that will appear behind the flowers in the painting for which they are a study.

The sun has come out finally!  So the colors in the flowers are more vivid — in the actual bouquet.  The colors in the painting have always been bright.  Here’s the early and present state of the study, which is still on-going.

bouquet night of 5-10

I bought more flowers yesterday, some Sweet Williams, to join the other bouquet I had already.  Again I placed them above the drawing of the Limoges vase.  And I produced the study above, painting until rather late at night.  This is the largest of the studies so far, and I am thinking about doing another study of the same motif.  Here’s the set up below:
