Blocked in color and shapes. Some values added to distinguish shapes.

I saw some beautiful little paintings of flowers this week in The Provincetown Art Musuem. Each one was about the size of a tarot card. They were very painterly with an encaustic-like surface. So, it made me think I should do some quick studies of our flowers. I am starting with the zinnia, which I love. Today I drew in the shape and set the composition. This is larger than the PTown paintings, 5" x 7"
