Back at the ol' place.
Because of C⚡Vid I avoided the back garden, it's just too crowded now. Too much noise.
But I found a day, early hours when there was hardly anyone out. Better!
Again, the same light I used a year before. Strong backlight.
This painting took 2 days to finish.
Because when midday-light hits, the floral set-up can be 180 degrees different, ugly even. LIGHT is oh so important. Doing this for a number of years, you'll get more sensitive to the 'right light'.
→When you continue too long in 'degrading light' the painting can go down with it. Better stop to finish in the same circumstances the next day!

Here I started at around 9:45 AM.
Going into it for 2 or 3 hours it's such different light.
Found this most apparent when I started the next day at the same time.
I was thinking: "No wonder I couldn't finish on Day 1". It was just so different at noon, compared to 'my first idea' = that first sight!
Those purples and blues do fit well with the yellows.
Currently, you can still join this Challenge, watch videos and be motivated to paint!
