Week 21: Vase of Flowers by Jan Davidsz de Heem

{week 21: end of the day}

Hello,

We are now on the home stretch of completing this painting! Yah!

Today I returned to the NGA to work on the copy and it was a a bit difficult to decide where to focus as all the main flowers and areas have had a least one pass over. So instead I decided to jump around the painting focusing on areas that need attention.

Areas worked on today include the orange flower below the hydrangea, which will get an orange glaze applied to it next week. {I made it lighter this week so when the glaze goes on it has some room to darken a bit.} The wheat stalk that falls down in front {this still needs some work}, and misc. items that dot the canvas like water droplets, insects, and highlights.
