Slowly .... Steadily ... Creeping On ...

This is generally where I am heading ...

Format size is about 10 x 12 inches.
I have almost all of the local leaf color down; now the FUN part.


This is going to be a long, slow haul. Almost of the painting is being  done w/w, using small to tiny brushes. It does make a difference to the quality of depth and the 3-D effect, so I will continue with it.

  3. I love the subtle warm/cool color variations and value changes on the pedals. Your patience and attention to details show through. It's looking great!

    One thing I find difficult in a complicated painting like this with a lot of overlapping shape is the edge quality where on shape comes into contact with another. When I wet each shape separately and drop in colors wet in wet, it tend to form a darkened edge between two shapes. Do you know how to avoid this?

  6. looking beautiful, and I can see the depth coming. I learned watercolor this way, by correcting billions of mistakes. Now I can paint backwards!
