something different

Normally I sketch with very loose paint, block in my colors, and then work in the background.
My friend Jordon came over to work with me yesterday and I decided to do a more detailed sketch. We worked on completely blocking in the background first with a mixture of prussian blue, burnt umber, purple , and red. I'm not used to working this way at all, so those flowers are intimidating to me right now! I'm going to work on it more today and hopefully will have an update tonight.
I apologize for not having more little daily paintings to offer you right now. I am in "show mode zone" and am feeling that upcoming deadline. I may surprise you in the next couple of days, though, because I really miss them! Hope everyone is well and thanks for watching.

    This is going to be gorgeous! I can't wait to see it when you are finished. It is so exciting to see your works in progress.

  2. Thanks,
    I'm wondering what it's going to look like too!
