Now let’s start on the BIG changes. First we’re replacing the Salvia and Penstemon with Wine Cups. They are painted in my usual sequence of Flowers First, Leaves Last with mixes of Alizarin Crimson + Magenta + White. If the video screen doesn’t show just CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE to watch.

The Wine Cups are almost done, I’ll come back later and add the centers.

Time to dry up that stream!

A clump of Bluebonnets is nestled next the the Wine Cups and cactus. This video shows the blocking in process.

A few determined Daises emerge from a crevice in the rocks next to the Bluebonnets. Dioxazine Purple + White is used for the flowers in shadow. Highlights will be made with Pure White.

It’s fun to let a few patches of Wine Cups grow in the distance using some of the paint left over from the flowers in the foreground.
