I now have a reference that will help me tremendously the next time I paint. I can quickly see what colour "blend" will help get me headed in the right direction.
When I sketch, I often work from my photos, but yesterday was a lovely day to sit outside and work from real life. My white Trillium are at the "turning pink" stage, with the edges becoming very ruffled. I plucked a bloom and began sketching.
Something I have a bad habit of doing, is sketching very small.....it then becomes rather difficult to capture details.
I tried again, this time with my one and only red Trillium,
working toward making much better use of the page
