Broad strokes were used with not too much fussy detail. The tonal differences were very small, I did light the flowers from the side to create more shadows and interest.
I decided to paint over the top of the dusty pink ground in a similar but lighter colour graduating it as I went up the board also leaving gaps so the base colour shows through and links it together.
This is a stunning painting of the magnolia flower. The graduated background, the slight showing of the the board for texture, really enhances the creamy white and pink flower heads.ReplyDelete
