I haven't posted in over a week. But I have been working everyday averaging abut 3 hours a day. Today I finally worked completely across the upper half laying in the basic palette. The other major change was to remove the 2 white shasta daisies. My resident critic said they should go. When asked his opinion about them he said, "The question is why?". The weakest section is the center top. Tomorrow I will start on the lower, grass portion. Then it will be time to refine shapes, values, etc.
