This is the beginning sketches.
Then I use a gel medium (golden) to paste down the paper onto the wood panel,
which is 20x16. Big!
I sketch the from the tracing paper onto the panel with Saral paper.
It act like carbon paper and transfers the image.
I paint the background a white.
Then I start with the flowers and stems first.
The next step is the mason jars. I did a little test. The jar on the left was painted white first, then color. The jar on the right was painted with color only. I decide on the left jar. Just so the color would pop and I could leave a white highlight on the jars too.
painting in progress.
The final art. Spring flowers in old jars.
