STAGES 2 AND 3
Well - I was able to work on this painting a bit, and get it to what I am calling Stage 3. I have placed the darkest shadows and most of the midtones which begins to shape the petals of the lily. In this perspective, you can see deep into the bowl of the flower, and the light creates a glow where the petals meet the stem. Of course, this is all just underpainting - covering the canvas. None-the-less, it does tend to cause me to become excited at the potential finished look of the painting. I can already see it shaping up!
