Painting in Progress #1 "Succulents"

In a post from August 31st I introduced the photograph of succulents that I'd been wanting to do for a while.  I thought it would be a good example of how I build a painting.  In this first photo you can see how I sketched out the image first.  I then selected three colors of oil paint and began to lightly lay in some color. This stage is really like a color sketch.  Doing it this way gives me a feel for the end result.  The original image from my mind is just starting to emerge.

Remember to check back to see the next stage!
