Hi,this morning I finished my cyclamen painting. This is the one I started before Christmas.
I painted most of yesterday afternoon and ran into the situation.. the composition needed something but I wasn't sure What.. I liked the way the pink flower came down on the left side and didn't want to change that.. so I sketched 2 rambling buds and cut them out and placed them on my watercolor and That was what I needed. Sometimes if I'm unsure I'll paint an extra flower on a scrap of paper and then move it around on the painting to determine where it's needed or if it's needed. This is a very good and easy help for your paintings.. I don't do this always but when you get in that "What does it Need Now, Mode".
So what do you think? Take care,and now on to the next painting.. humm.. what will it be! talk to you soon,Diana
