Ontario Trillium painting update


Now I feel as it this floral painting is coming to life! The sunlight partially hitting the trillium plant is starting to appear in this step. It shines on the flower and the leaf thus creating darker shadows that contrast against brighter areas.

This is stunning. The look of texture on the leaves and the veining in the flower is absolutely perfect!

Thanks ladies for your comments. There is still much work left on this piece although it looks much better than the first post.
