Still Life Challenge

I was reminded yesterday of a very purple painting I'd done years ago (which is now on the top of this page) and I was thinking that I'd work on a painting in blues and purples today.  I set up a still life with two printed cotton cloths, a green and crimson/purple bouquet, a green water bottle and a mango.

It's a lot of work just getting into the patterns, but here's where it is as of now.  More work to be done tomorrow.  I have a feeling a few of the elements of the bouquet will be shriveled and gone before I finish.
this is the set up for the still life

this is how it looks in progress
