Painting process: More anemones

The anemones are still holding up, so I added a few new flowers to create a beautiful Spring blue bouquet. Above is the set-up and the sketch.

The underpainting is complete. It’s looking good!

Yay, I’m done! I worked for three days on this because of all the detail and the gingham cloth. I may have overworked it slightly. Love the blues though.

  1. 3 days⁉️Would take me 3 months! You really have the technique down to give it such color & the feeling of depth. Great job. (‘Tis why you are one of my favorite painters. )
