Winter Floral I started with a simple sketch, then  a cool blue value study using thinned down paint to create a transparent underpainting. Feeling confident with my composition, I immersed myself in building up the layers of color, moving from the darks in the table and shadows, to the midtones in the leafy greenery, and the lights in rose petals and berries. The pinecones were especially challenging. Once I realize I didn't have to paint every single detail, I enjoyed playing with which parts to highlight and which to leave in shadow.
