All stages of this painting of flowers are shown below as I work on this landscape oil painting on canvas.
5th Stage in Painting of Flowers
The oil painting of flowers on a porch overlooking the ocean is coming along well. Below is the photo of step 5 as I paint this landscape oil painting.
I continued working on the porch details including the brick floor and the wood deck with the stone steps. I changed the layout of the brick because the previous pattern was over the top with the perspective in this painting. I decided to have a simpler pattern because there was already a lot going on in that area. The background has been glazed over again as I refine each area. It is important to step back and analyze a painting to see if you are following your initial plan of values and color. If you look at each stage of this painting of flowers on a porch there are many adjustments being made as I work on each section. I usually hang a painting in progress on different walls and in different rooms so I can see how it looks in a variety of settings. It is amazing to see how different a painting can look in different areas around a home.
