In my studio: More progress, Autumn still life-30 x 36 inches

Monday I painting off an on for 12 hrs and I am half way done.  I will be resting most of today and trying not to look at the painting.  I need fresh eyes and a relaxed body to continue.  My first task on Monday was to sort out the bouquet, which took some time.  Then I started on the vase.  Now it's time for the pattern.

I then add more colours to the pattern.  I think the cream in the pattern needs to stand out more so I will fix that later today.
