Moving right along

with my current work at a good pace. Having allowed time for the dye paint to dye to the touch, I began to section off the background in preparation for painting additional painting tomorrow. When that was done, I took a good look and decided that the composition needed more flowers so I drew one and a part of one on the right side and will get them dye painted tomorrow in addition to getting quite a bit of the background done on the left side where the dye paint will be dry and not subject to being influenced by the background color.
I am not sure what color the background will be at this moment. Something mid value range, quiet, calm and cool. But what color????? Once I get to mixing dyes and testing the values on scrapes, it will all come right. Confident, aren't I. Right!

The flowers are lovely. What size is it going to finish?

Hi Carol
The piece as it is now measures 45"x45.
Will probably lose 2-3 inches or so after quilting, cropping and finishing the edges with a facing.

Oh, yum! The colors are just wonderful! It's so fun to watch the whole process!
