My set up.  A bit darker than what I usually go for but I'm trying something different.

The cloth has the pattern painted in very loosely.  I will add more paint and details later on.

 The background, leaves and stems are done so now I begin painting on the lilies using a palette knife.

Working from the darkest parts of the flowers towards the lightest parts.  Now it's ready for some details.

The lilies are complete.  I saved some paint from the background and the cloth, with this I finished the vase.  This is where I stopped last night.  I could have kept going but I didn't want to get sloppy as I began to get tired.   I will continue in a few hours.
