Petal Prepping

I worked on the two left front poppy petals tonight using the lightest value in the single strand of Splendor.  I also added the middle value in the top petal but still have more to add.  The curved petal at the bottom will get some of the middle value added to the open area, but will remain light as it swirls around the petal in the very center.

Hi Pat!

I have finished the flowers and the stems. I think I'm just going to do the leaf outlines and veins, and not fill them in completely. I like the way it directs my focus to the flowers. Plus it will save me some time. I have one more leaf vein to do and the counted background, and I'll be done!

The flowers are growing more lovely by the day, Pat. I am eager to see more of this one.
