Flowers, revisited

In 2012 I painted a picture of a flower store in Paris.  At the time, I was very happy with the finished painting, but a few months later, was dissatisfied. It seemed too flat, some of the drawing was noticably off, it was just not working for me.  It's a big painting, like 5 feet wide, so it was taking up a lot of storage since I didn't want to hang it anymore.  I brought it into the studio earlier this week and made a lot of adjustments to the painting to make the space seem deeper.  I also repainted a lot of the roses, leaves, well, just about everything.

this is what the painting looked like last year

this is the repainted painting, finished today
And I made some progress on the tulip painting.
