Rose Painting Stage #2


Once the composition is established I begin to fill in the negative space with very dark dots, starting with green/brown in the lower right corner and changing into dark purple along the top, then blue on the left side.  I’m laying dots in the darkest areas of the rose at the same time.  At this point I’m becoming overwhelmed and need to fill in the negative space with multi-colored dots so that I can see the shapes in the rose.

More tomorrow,
