Lavender Update

Hi Everyone, I have been working on my Lavender painting every other day and I took a few pics of my painting progress.

Drawing on Canvas

Then I blocked in some nice cad yellow medium with a tint of white for background. Put some masking tape around the edges where I will have my cobalt blue border - about 1 inch from the sides all round. I also then pretty much finished the pail and the wording was a difficult task...I tell you. I felt like an old fashion typesetter..LOL

Added some greens to the stems and finished my cord/knot. Then I had the very difficult task of adding the cobalt blue to the borders. Thought I was going to pull my hair out. But I am very happy with it.

Where I am now. Blocked some lavender color (perm violet, white, and some quin.red) for the flowers. I now will do some outlining and define the flowers. I was really hoping to finish today but I dont think I will be able to work on the painting till Monday.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
