I've begun to paint in the green areas of the first painting - some leaves and stems. I tried out a new Liquin medium (light gel) which makes a delicious, buttery smooth paint but it's probably better as a glaze than an underpainting. I will probably have to go over this again later to get more coverage. Like the Two Flowers painting, I intend to lay down the color first and then tone it down with a grisaille glaze. Stay tuned.
