Commission progress

This is how the first step looks after the rough sketch. I am using a photo as my collector's inspiration. I begin placing large blocks of color to position my main subjects.

This is the next phase - continuing to block in colors with the thought of filling up the canvas. You can still see large blocks of my toned red/burnt sienna in the background.


This is a nice place to be. The canvas is totally covered with vibrant color. The sky is filled in with nice areas of light and dark with the blue colors trickling down into the flowers. I can see that this painting is going to be much warmer than my inspiration photo. Maybe it is because is was 12 degrees here today and I am COLD!

I inclination not agree on it. I assume nice post. Especially the appellation attracted me to study the unscathed story.
