I'm going to show you a few steps at a time to my creative process. This really takes weeks to complete, but I'll speed up showing you the process.
Here's the beginning of the painting. I have the little girl with the start of flowers - the basic composition.
Now, I've added more color to the flowers and grass to add depth. Not sure that I am pleased with the horizon or the distracting purple crocus in the foreground.
Although the shadows on her jacket are not done yet, I want to see what a line of trees would look like in the distance at the horizon.
Don't think that I am pleased with the horizon trees yet. I'll have to think about it and work on another part of the painting.
That's all for now. I'll bring you up to date in a bit. I'd love to hear from you and learn what you think of this painting so far. Any suggestions?
