Poppies

IMG_3342
Last week I painted the fence and brick border. This week I shaded the fence and border, and started working on the flowers some more. I intensified the colour with glazing on the orange ones, and added highlights with white to the pink ones. I still need to intensify the colour on the pink ones, and do more with the foreground foliage.

I'm really liking this. :)

Here's a before and after comparison:

(I forgot to take a photo after last week's painting session until I was about to start painting yesterday... but didn't have my camera with me. Whoops.)
