Flickering Flames - A Work in Progress

I started this painting along with Water Lily Reflections (see posting on 06 September 10) and Yellow Water Lilies (see posting on 07 September 10).

I added darker colour to the left side of the fire near the bottom for more contrast against the red and yellow.

Using new gamboge and aureolin I brightened up some of the flames.

I have to decide where I am going to indicate some of the wood beneath the fire as well as how much detail I want to have in the flames.

I will post this painting again once it is completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
