Spring Flowers

Spring flowers -  a handful from the front yard.   I have added a couple of colors back to my palette, lemon yellow and cad orange - just to add some variation.  This sketch is another exercise in keeping an eye on the intervals and shapes and the weight of the objects in relation to each other.  I switched up the vases a couple of times, of course after I had blocked it in once so I had to wipe if off and start over.  Using the rear view mirror helps to see mistakes.  There are only three objects here, really, how hard could this be?  But they can be arranged many ways, and consider the fabric fold, how that helps the eyes come into the painting - it all makes quite a difference.  Like golf, painting is not a game of perfect!
