The flower is from my garden. I wanted to create a painting with depth and simplicity. It's size is 10.5 x 14.8cm (A6) postcard size.
Below is a series of photos showing the painting in stages.
The top left photo is the silverpoint drawing followed by the successive stages of the background colours which changed in tone while the painting progressed with the flower itself! Finally to presenting the painting in its frame. I added an inner slip frame to lead the eye into the flower and give the whole piece more bulk because of the small size.
