Lilacs, An Update

Happily I got to paint a bit today.  I am still working the area on the viewer's left, try to untangle what my eyes see so the petals make sense.  You can see on the 2nd lilac on the left I began it with soft shapes because it is on the parameter of the center of interest. 

I know this is taking me a bit of time to paint and I hope you continue to visit when an update is posted.  I work on it in spurts as I have lots of interruptions and I wait for the paper to dry instead of using a hair dryer.   This gives me the opportunity to step back to see if the shapes and values are really working.

This is lovely - so ethereal.
I wouldn't be rushing it either.
