…and the saga continues :)

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wasn’t quite sure what to do next. Either paint blocks of colours in or just go for the final layers. I ended up doing a little of both. Here’s a photo of the background being painted in. I decided to try and make it more finished, so that I only have to add a few additional shades/colours here and there.


My next step was painting in the lily pads. I decided just to block those in using colours that were bright and would be seen when I added the final layers of the ‘real’ colours. Those colours are usually the more subtle, muted shades, though my favourites are the pure ones 🙂 As you might have already gathered from seeing final examples of my work!

Here’s the next photo, the lighting isn’t the greatest but you get the gist.

blocked in lily pads

My next step is either to start painting the waterlily itself or go back to working on the lily pads. I will decide once I sit down in front of the canvas, see what kind of mood I’m in and what I feel like tackling in that painting session!
