I started this painting by toning with burnt sienna and ultra marine blue and sketching with my favorite angled brush from Michaels–It is the Level 2 Artist’s Loft Firenze Angle Brush in size 4. I will do a seperate review of soon. It is my go-to brush for sketching and making fine lines.
I wanted the focal point to be centered on the plate for this one.
I worked in two different sessions for this painting. I added some finishing touches and leaves to give it more movement and added some interesting textures with a palette knife.
