What you see here is my first day's work on it. It has changed since. I've added some poppy seed heads and a few more flowers. There is lots still to do on it, adding layers of colour and detail. These photos will really give you a sense of how I start with very light washes. The lavender sweetpeas look like floral phantoms at this point but they will slowly acquire dimension and texture. I will also deepen the poppies' colour and add texture to their petals.

It's also not the first time I've painted a row of flowers. You just need to look at my blog header to see that. :) And there was the painting of wildflowers that I finished last year. It is available in my Etsy shop as a print. A row of tangled flowers is probably one of my favourite kinds of paintings to paint.
