New Painting Idea for Pansies

Hi everyone, well I started some work today for my next funky floral painting and its all about pansies!

I was thinking of one color initially for the flowers, but my imagination got the best of me and I decided on many different colors for the pansies.

I am going to use my little Hungarian vase I recently bought in Budapest for the painting. However, I am not going to do it with the handle showing as seen here, as I have completed several paintings like this already (re: the pitchers). So I turned it frontal.....

And this is the perspective I will be using for the painting:

Then I very roughly, and I mean roughly did a fast sketch to put my idea down on paper:

Then I did my sketch which I will use as the basis for my painting. It was somewhat difficult to do because I had to just rely on my imagination for the placement of the pansies as I don’t have any good pics of a bouquet of pansies or any real life ones. I could not find any.

So here is my idea/sketch in color for the basis of my painting. Looking now at the sketch on screen I will add another yellow floral --so the light purple one next to the blue one (viewer’s right) will be predominately yellow with some magenta highlights.

I would appreciate any comments you may have. I will soon begin the drawing on the canvas. Wishing you a great day! and happy painting or holidays whatever you may be doing!
