ADJUSTMENTS

Yesterday's painting has been adjusted slightly here and there, and I'm calling it finished now.
There's been another stem added (thanks for your helpful comments) by lifting the top edge of color off of it before adding Rich Green Gold and Transparent Pyrrol Orange to the bottom edge. The stem shows darker on top than it actually is since the top of the stem is lighter than the background. Also, the inside of the big flower over to the right was darkened some as well as softened where the seeds meet the petals.

The left hand flower has adjustments also so I don't have to crop it off. And the distracting petals on the top right of the big flower have been quieted way down, as have some of the whites on the edges of the pokey green things above that flower. How's that for technical terms of a flower?!? You'd never know I spent 20 some years working in a garden center, would you?

Now on to the next painting, which won't be a pour. But first, I have an art reception to go to tomorrow at Sharon Woods in Cincinnati, Ohio. It's from 1 to 4 - hope you can make it.
