6 hours of work today and I feel drained so may take the weekend off. I finished the purple flowers that are in focus and started the orchid. This is probably the most detailed painting I have done. This is all first layer work. Depth will magically appear on the second round and when I paint in the background. (Excuse the airplane noise, a small plane with a banner kept flying above). Swipe to see painting so far and today's detail.

Today was a long day, almost all day painting the purple flowers no idea why I didn't seem to progress, the stock was easier than these and there was far more. I think I put more emphasis on light and shadow and detail rather than just blocking in the first layer, well thats my excuse for a full days work and not much to shiw for it. I will try to complete the purple flowers tomorrow. Does anyone know what they are called? I think they may be in the "Stock" family.

Work in progress. I completed the first layer only on the white stock. I also did a little bit of glazing on the rose shadows where the petals touch the stock.  When you see the entire painting the King Protea is incomplete and the second layer will strengthen the colours.

Back in the studio, work in progress. I started the first layer of the white stock. My eyes were going gaga after a while as I didn't draw all the petals in so there was a lot of concentration required. Now I feel totally drained and my eyes need a break, I didn't finish it but I did paint in a further lily stem and bud (all first layer only). #workinprogress

Detail WIP.  Day 6 the first layer of what I believe (thank you to a follower 😊), is the Abraham Derby, David Austin rose. Pleased with my progress so far πŸ€—. I usually build up many layers of transparent colours, however as I didn't paint a grisaille,  this first layer is painted using mainly opaque colours. I will deepen shadow areas once this layer is fully dry using transparent glazes and add white highlights where I have lost some to my over blending. SWIPE FOR CLOSE UPS AND BEFORE AND AFTER PROCESS

My tiny studio is getting crowded, I will be varnishing one work this weekend and hanging one on the wall to dry completely. Thankful the gallery is being patient about receiving my work. The weather has been awful for drying oil paintings. I will update my current work later in the day when I hope to have completed the Abraham Derby rose (thanks Sharon) ☺

WIP Detail, Not much to see today, I started the first layer of an apricot coloured rose but had a friend around so not long spent in the studio. Yesterday's rose went quickly,  this one is a little more challenging.

My espaliered Star Jasmine is starting to flower. This is the first year the diamond shape is almost complete. After it flowers I will trim it into an even diamond shape.

Detail, WIP, had terrible dry eyes today so I only managed to block in the first layer on a rose. It will eventually be very much in the shadows of this painting.

WIP...First layer of the Lily and buds, subsequent layers colour will be strengthened. I am really just blocking in but with some detail otherwise I find it hard later to find where I'm working. It's a bit like a watercolour wash using 50/50 galkyd/OMS as a mix for the first layer. I only use the tiniest amount with my paint. Subsequent layers will have more galkyd and less OSM until the last layers are pure pigment. Normally I use only linseed as a medium but have found Gamblin OSM and Galkyd virtually odourless.
