It was such a sad and disturbing day yesterday with the happenings in Paris. I was shocked into silence and quiet thoughts as I guess many of us were.
But today is a new day and with gratitude for being safe and at peace here, I am back working on the daffodils.
By the way Hello to the new members who have joined...so glad to have you following!
The daffodils at the window painting has been progressing.
I masked out the brightest areas first.
Then I started in an unusual and quite risky way by laying in the shadows over the whole painting with a mix of ultramarine. some pink and some burnt sienna. I ignored the local colour, screwed up my eyes and just painted the darker tones.
Then when that was dry I started putting in some local colour straight over the dark tonal mix. In the photo below the masking fluid is still on.
