Part 5


             Here`s my palette: (in clockwise direction) new gamboge, new gamboge mixed with ruby red (gives an orange which is not too bright), ruby red, three varying mixes of ruby red mixed with pthalo blue and the last contains raw sienna. The other dish has the shadow mix (the blobs of yellow and orange are the remains from another painting) As I go along, I mix any of these colors to the shadow mix to get a wide range of shadow colors.


            The smaller areas are mostly completed in one wash. The centre areas here tend towards orange whereas it was more towards green in the centre areas of the previous flower.


  1. Could you do a demonstration on how you go about drawing a multi pettaled flower like the opera roses or peony….i get totally confused with the petals
