Orchid Crowd WIP - Acylic painting

Orchid Crowd by Marion Hedger
50x60 cm 20"x24"
Acylic on canvas

Here are some WIP pics for this painting
Stage 1
The colourful underpainting using warm colours for the highlights and cool colours for the shadows.

Stage 2
Making the colours look more real. A true fauvist's delight
 Stage 3
Breaking up the areas more and more. It is starting to come alive now.

After this stage there is more and more refining. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos - as so often happens I get carried away.
