Dahlia Daze

Dahlia Daze
8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Did this painting with a differnt approach than my often used, transparent underpainting followed by opaques method.  Below are the steps in the progression from initial drawing and  laying of darks, midtones and lights , in that order as well as the 3 different value families mixed on my palette.

The original photo reference was sent to me by my cousin Marie. It's a dahlia from her Brooklyn container garden, planted and tended by her husband Paul.
