Here is the study where I focused more on brushwork and a variety of yellows.
|Flower Study #6|
Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
Here is the photo I was working from, credited to Daniel Edmondson
Here is the first stage where I laid in the flower shapes with the darkest colors I saw, using transparent paints only.
Here is the next stage with the background laid in, again with transparent paints.
From this point, I started adding more opaque colors to indicate light and shadow of the flowers and refine the shapes of the petals etc.. till I completed the painting with the first image noted above.
