"Mini" portrait in progress 3

The plant foliage is finished. I may add a few more leaves and stems…I want to see how the balance looks when I get the black flowers finished first.


This is 4 days’ work. I don’t work a long da, the work is too detailed and takes too much concentration to put in 8 hours. But there are plenty of other things to be done in my work-day to stay in business as an Artist: marketing, bookkeeping, website updates, the list goes on (and on, and on…).


Right now the hellebore blossoms are just flat black from the watercolor underpainting you saw in a previous step. When I get the blues and purples in on the petals, and the gold stamens, the hellebore garden will really come to life.
