09.21.14 Day 21 of 30

So today I had to do the shadow on the lower flower.  I did a bit of black but it just wasn’t right.  Then I remembered that to deepen the blue colour one adds a bit of a colour opposite on the colour wheel – orange (burnt sienna) and then the blue deepens and becomes slightly toned down.  I am really pleased with the shadow and the variations in the shadow.

Because the flowers are blue I have decided to use indigo/black combo for the dark background.  I will see how it goes in the next few days! 🙂

Day 21 is complete!  See you tomorrow.
