Playing With Green, A Study in Progress
It feels so good to be painting even if it is just playing with greenery. The reference for this study is the same Mums photo I used earlier for a painting. This time though I wanted to concentrate on the leaf areas since that is where I have the most challenges when painting florals, as can be seen in the stage shown above.
My favorite area right now is the upper part. I like the soft tones and variety of colors. So far I have used Fr. Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Viridian, Quin. Rose, Azo Yellow and for the warmer tones added Raw Sienna.
