Blue Poppy Painting Phase #9


As the painting takes shape the dots become dense, I realize that I need to make the whole flower much more blue, an intense, beautiful blue.  It looks washed out at the moment.  Time to layer more dots over the existing dots with combinations of prussian, ultramarine, phthalo, cerulean and azure, some as tints and others as shades, some mixed with the compliment and others used in their purest form, perhaps thinned and applied as washes.  Time to enjoy and revel in the joy of color.

More tomorrow,
