Progression of a painting


Here is the ground begun with a cadmium red gouace overlaying a tissue collage on watercolor paper. I've marked in the lines (what I think of as 'waves' when I draw/paint them) with a conte crayon.


Outlining the basic shapes in a falling pattern....very fun to do.


Beginning to block in the darker, shadow areas and the highlights around the light source at the top of the painting.


Beginning to give form to the 'leaves' themselves, giving them weight and presence. Also gave the wave forms some overlapping depth.

And from here?
We shall see. Posted by Picasa
