Just need to sign it...

This painting has come a long way in the past few weeks. Color scheme is: 25% dioxazine purple + 75% titanium white for the underpainting. The sky is 50% dioxazine purple mixed with 50% titanium white (why I did not go with N6 neutral gray, I do not know...) and the ground is a mixture of chromium green oxide and titanium white, with slightly more white mixed in than I did in the previous painting. The flowers are 100% dioxazine purple with a light layer of primary magenta brushed on later, with titanium white to line the edges. The line through the middle consists of a few shades of carbon black that I will have to examine closely, lined with pure primary magenta below. The green is phthalo green (yellow shade), just like all the rest!
