That's awesome that you can look at a few different images of the same flower and then visualize your own arrangement of the flower. It reminds me of something akin to Neo being able to see the 1s and 0s in the matrix. But I digress! I hope you're able to work on it more soon and look forward to seeing the updates.I looked at several different images of that same flower. This way I can visualize how the arrangement, colors, and shadows would look like in my version. What you see so far has taken 8 hours from sketching to painting, had to put it on hiatus because of work.
I'm looking forward to seeing the thread about your fair entry.I love WIP threads! Interesting graphing technique. I always use 1-2 inch squares, but I almost always work off a reference photo which is also graphed. I'll definitely be following along. I don't use acrylic very often, but will be starting one shortly for an entry in our local fair. I'm sure I'll learn a thing or two from this thread.
