Pots of Flowers

SL4915 Step 17

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Jack and I certainly appreciate all of your best wishes! Let’s start on the flowers. Rusty Red-Orange Lilies fill the larger container. They are blocked in with mixes of Alizarin Crimson + Cadmium Red Deep, Alizarin Crimson + Cadmium Red Light and Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Red Light.

Following my usual sequence of Flowers First, Leaves Last I start painting the foliage around the masses of Red-Orange. The greens are used to help shape the Lilies.

Sweet Potato Vine tumbles out of the container. The soft green is the complimentary color of the reds in the Lilies and Dress. This means the two hues are opposite each other on the color wheel. Both the Lilies and Dress will appear brighter because of the greens next to them.

The floral accompaniment is complete. Thank you for following along today. We’ll finish out our Latina Lady in the next session. Hope you’ll come watch. Hugs,

    I love this painting. Can’t wait to see it when it is finished. The Latina lady lovingly and graciously awaits her completion. You are doing a beautiful piece of art of her and her beautiful pots of flowers.
