Back to class this week, and still not quite finished. Almost, but not quite.
Much happier with the background now. I received some really helpful feedback from some of the artists at Wet Canvas which meant I was able to do some much needed tweaking. I still need to work on the shadows in the centre of the flower and finish up the stamen that I haven’t really touched yet. Will need to use some pastel pencils to create some of the finer lines. Also need to add some very light touches of pink into some of the bluer petals.
So next Tuesday this will be finished and I’ll be onto something new. I’ve really enjoyed working on this painting. Might be something to do with the size. But whatever it is, it has been fun.
