Today I spent most of the afternoon settimg up a still life to work from. I had purchased these gorgeous hydrangea blooms and they inpired this set up. I will sketch this out first to get a feel for the composition and then I plan on painting a value study. After I have worked out the details I want to paint it in color. I haven't decided in what value range I want the painting.
Hopefully, I can get a few small daily paintings from some of the elements of this still life.
