Although completely unfinished,I decided to share with you my rose composition at the beginning of Flemish painting process. It will take additional 3 to 6 months before the painting is finished. As always, all comments are highly appreciated and welcome.

This is the first Umber Layer in the Flemish painting technique. Its main purpose is to define the relation between different values in the painting. In my current painting there is a need for one more umber layer to darken certain areas and fine tune value relations. In this layer details are not painted and majority of the texture is left out. Once this layer is dry, the next layer will be "dead layer" in the tones of gray and many more color layers will follow.

Lela, this is exquisite already. I hope you will post your stages so that we can see this process - I know I would love to see how it proceeds!

I agree with Claire. It is beautiful and it would be a great way for us to learn if we could see all your stages on your blog someday.

This is lovely and could stand on it's own already, or even with subtle washed of color. It will be great to see how you transform it further.

Lela, this is an amazing start. Beautiful in it's own right. Please keep posting the various stages. Very helpful to someone like
me, who has never used oils.
