I have finished this painting but still have work to do to get it ready for an outdoor venu where the paintings will be hung on trees along a walking trail for a week. It needs a spray varnish, framing, and as a final touch, I’m going to add Cedar cuttings on a few places around the edge. This is a good place for a bit of experimentation and that’s why the painting is more impressionistic rather that my usual realistic style.

Yesterday I spent a couple of more hours on this. I’m going to darken the background so you will just be able to make out the fact there is vegetation around. The focus will be the flowers. Still a few layers of colour to go for those. I have to lift some paint on the Tulpi leaves for highlights as well.
