A friend asked me to do a large painting for a charity auction she's involved with, and I welcomed the chance to do something for them.
So I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show you the painting as it progresses. It's gonna end up being a large, open white poppy.
I got smart this time and painted the gallery edges first, so I wouldn't have to be cranky later that they weren't done yet.
Then I gridded it and laid in the flower. I grid when I want the proportions to be close to right on, then I don't have to do so much proportion correction later!
More next week....
