Work in progress

This painting started out as a closer view of the bouquet I started painting last week.  There was a shadow on the wall of the slats of a rocking chair that I particularly liked.  I was working on a black ground, so the painting quickly took on a very high-contrast, sharp-edged look.  Not what I really wanted.  I gave the painting the wipe-over today and I'm working back into it now.

this is how the painting looked before the "wipe over"

this is where it is now
