21x36" oil
I used a whole tube of black paint. I kept painting it darker and darker. The bottom area is more patchwork than realistic. The stems used to be more pronounced but the composition was too busy. I am learning the difference between hinting and delineating. I love the high-key contrast, greens, bright yellows, purply grays, and the backlighting. This painting will be available at my art show May 19th. I have so much more to paint to be ready. So much more.
