Seems like whenever I do oranges, I glaze to get them - so doing a few test swatches to make sure I'm using the colors I want. When glazing, you have to let the first layer dry bone dry before putting the second color over the first - so it will take some time.
Where you see a "+" sign, that means I'll be glazing another color on top of that one to get the color I want for this. Naples Yellow is the only opaque color and I should glaze that over something else to get that whitish yellow color in the photo.
I also decided to flip the photo so the buds are moving towards the upper right corner. I don't know why, but for some reason I like paintings and photos that have the movement from lower left to upper right - it just seems more uplifting to me.
Wating for glazes to dry teaches me patience and makes me think more about the painting as I wait - which is why I don't like to use a hairdryer to speed up the process.
Stay tuned for the start of the painting tomorrow.
