Well I finally took a picture even though it is so gray. Actually even at noon today it was like early evening and then we had some snow so taking a picture has not been easy. You will see how gray the paper appears and that has changed the colors on the entire painting I am sure. But at least you can see that I am working on the background. I decided to find all the shapes in the background before finishing the flowers to know how deep my values will have to go. This is a full sheet so it is going to take some work to cover all this paper but hopefully by the end of this week I will have made some progress!
