I just added the greenery in the second stage of this. I've decided I will finish it before the next class. That way, I'll have more time to help the students as they work on their versions of this painting.
The way I see it right now, I think the bottom stem and some of the greenery areas need to be darker in value before I start on the petals.
I just finished the latest book by Jodi Picoult, titled The Storyteller. I admit, she has been one of my favorite authors for years. But even so, this book is one of her very best! I highly recommend it, but warn you to give yourself a long weekend because you won't want to put it down after you start it.
