I start the painting by blocking in the background colors. I paint the negative space around the bird bath which will be added later.
After the background is painted in, I add the flowers and details working wet into wet.
Here's the finished painting, "Sunflowers", oil on panel, 12" x 12", c. 2016, by Charlene Marsh.
