In my studio: Sketching in a large floral still life, 40 x 40 inches

It was a very cold day today, it even snowed a bit.   You wouldn't know it in my studio though.  This yellow and orange bouquet has brought an early Spring.  Above is my sketch, I really concentrated on the bouquet.  I wanted to get the open parrot tulips just right, they will be the focal point.  The cloth is a cream gingham but I like the look of the stripes.  The stripes were painted in a dark brown because if I used the blue/green it would give the cream colour a greenish tint.
