View Full Version : WIP-Daisies

I've gotten off my pansy obsession and have moved on to a new one. :-)

This project is just in the blocking-in stage as far as the flowers and greenery are concerned. About the only thing that is "done" is the cat's face (more or less).

As you can see, there is a mismatch in contrasts between the values, and between the intensity of color in the cat's face and her surroundings. I find it easier to lighten things than to darken them, so right now I am just making sure to have my colors right and then I plan to bring the foliage into lighter values by glazing.

The plane the cat is sitting on is supposed to be brown earth, hopefully this will become more apparent as I continue... There also needs to be more blue or purple in the upper left and lower right corners, I think?

This is a really fantastic start! The cat looks so realistic and natural, that I can almost see her (or him) jumping out of the painting after a mouse. Please post the second stage soon, I can't wait to see this finished :).
