"Unfolding"...16" x 20" oil on Canvas

I painted this flower by using my usual glazing method. That involves painting a complete, detailed, accurate, gray underpainting first. Over that I applied many thin, glaze layers of paint, until I achieve the colors that I want for the rose.
This composite of photos shows the stages of progress of this painting, from the drawing upon a lightly toned canvas, to the final glaze layer of color.

I had a lot of fun painting this piece. I painted this on a RayMar Linen Panel, and I used a photo that my son had taken of an illuminated river boat. Trying to be a bit more "painterly", I used thicker paint, a bit larger brush, and I tried to only suggest the finer details.
