Week 14: Vase of Flowers by Jan Davidsz de Heem
Progress for this week was really more of the same as last week. I ended up refining the initial block in of the red flower and leaves below the tulips, expanding a little to the purple flowers. The detail was kept to a minimum due to the need of verifying and adjusting scale some. I got off some, making the leaves a little to big for this side of the canvas.
I also completed the second pass of the outer tulip, refining some of the value variations and shape of the petals and I began to paint the yellow butterfly, one of the most important insects in the painting.
