Flower Power 1 - A Work in Progress

It is a warmer day today starting off at -10F (-23.3C) and we will see just how warm it does manage to get, but I won't hold my breath waiting.

Today I worked on this small painting that I had started a couple of years ago (see post on 09 May 2012).

I started by adding a few green leaves and painting in the negative to create some petals.

Using raw sienna I started giving the yellow flowers near the top of the vase some shape by adding shadows and a small amount of definition to the centers.

With a little burnt sienna I added the stamens into the flower centers.

I will post this painting again as I do more work on the flowers and the vase.

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