COMMISSION UPDATE

STEP THREE: After toning the canvas and creating a loose sketch, this is the next step. It involves composition, correct placement, and just playing with colors to fit everything in. This completed painting should have a vivid sky, poppies, coneflowers, and lots of wildflowers. Some of the flowers are reaching up into the sky, so I feel there is just no room for a middle ground.
STEP 4: I have placed the flowers where I want them,
trying to create a nice color range and flow.
I am happy with placement - I just need word from my collectors
about whether they would like any changes before I proceed further.
The final painting should have more warmth from whites, yellows, and oranges in the sky.
