Magnolia Midpoint

Today, I began by mixing a range of warm and cool greens. I've included a shot of my palette so you can see what I've got going, using the same limited set up that I mentioned in previous posts.

It's definitely coming along! I'm still using bigger brushes, trying to keep the strokes distinct. The mid-tone greens really help to establish the three main areas now: background, leaf masses and the flowers themselves. I want to maintain some looseness, keeping an interchange going between various planes. But this, at least, creates a basic layer to build on later.

The light really fades quickly at this time of year! It forces you to work quickly. Once this is dry, in a day or two, I can better adjust and add to it.
