I have gotten my magnolia in crystal bowl demo by Char of WetCanvas up to this point and am awaiting critiques from one of my groups before continuing. It has been fun so far, but I find I strayed from Char's original drawing somewhat. We'll see if I strayed too far! I am using my new Pelikan pan paints as a trial on this so I can see if I want to tuck it into my plein air setup. I need to add more darks and soften some of the petal edges a bit.
After visiting with our grandbaby again this last weekend I have more reference photos that have me all inspired to do another portrait. So many ideas, so little time!
