More on the Bird of Paradise Painting in Progress

I have now added the greens to the flower base. I want to make the flower more of the focal point, so to do that I have to intensify the different values between the yellows, greens and blues of the flower with the blues and lavenders of the background.

Here, I have added yellow glazes to the flower and I have added some green glazes to the leaves. I used Quinicridone gold for the yellow wash, and Hooker's green for the greens. I also added some Quinicridone gold to some of the leaves to warm then up. This helps to separate them more from the cool background.
More to come...
