Phase 3 Painting
In this stage I've added some dimension to the leaves and stems. I tried out some glass bead medium on the flower centers. I'm not sure I like it for a small area. I still haven't touched the petals yet. That will be next.
I think I hate working on a dark background. Next painting will be on a light ground and we will see how that goes. Sorry about the glare. I've been using gloss medium, which makes the painting pretty shiny. I put the painting in a gold frame in order to better visualize the end result. (This is always helpful.) Unfortunately, this photo doesn't do it justice at all - too dark. It is going to look better than I thought. Stay tuned.
