Painting process: Anemones, stripes

Found some beautiful Anemones in town and started painting them as soon as I got home. I absolutely love anemones! Above is my set up and my sketch. The board size is 16 x 16 inches.

With the underpainting completed, I can move onto using thicker paint with my palette knife.

The painting is finished! I know I didn’t document every single step, but the actual painting time was about two days. No fruit in this one, I wanted the flowers to be the star of this piece.
