Artist's description:

These flowers are simply precious. When they popped up in my new garden I propped my easel up outside and went to town. Their delicacy and detail are what drew me in. This is the kind of painting you could find the perfect nook for and enjoy it when reading or simply resting.

My painting process is to first layer in a warm color, like burnt sienna, onto white linen canvas. With that thin layer still wet, I wipe out the lightest areas, which later provides luminosity and usually is enough to define the shapes. Next, I apply the lightest and then darkest areas, which helps to establish the values and colors. Finally middle tones and more detailed areas are applied, always looking to harmonize the colors, refine the drawing and focus on the center of interest.
