Reeds 5 and 6 - Two Works in Progress

Today I started working on the last two paintings of reeds that I had started last year (see posting on 30 October 2012 and 09 November 2012).

I put in the under paint of the cattails first and then added the stalks below them.

With various green mixtures I started painting details on the leaves of the reeds.

I added  some "fluff" to one of the cattails before setting the painting aside to dry and decide what more it needed  in order to be finished.

I wanted to do a little on the second piece and painted in the first of the cattails.

I will post these paintings at a later date as they are completed.
