Well, I was just going to put in the darks and then post again but I liked what I was doing so did more. And then I put some light colors on the petals and removed the miskit. This is where it stands right now and I'm enjoying it so far.
Ready to call it a day on this and maybe pick it up again tomorrow.
And Smudge wants me to share this handsome photo of him...stretched out in the sunroom and watching me photograph the blushing magnolia and asking, "Why are you still working on that painting, Mom, instead of petting me?"
