This is a still life of an orchid I purchased at Lowes garden store area. I also placed 2 clementines on the table to balance it and give it color. I have been working on this painting for 3 days a couple of hours a day. I was able to finish about 90% with no problem. THEN......... I decided to rework the blooms and that ended up being longer than thought.
Here is the setup. Its small and did not want to take up too much band width but you can get the idea. The wall is a warm tanish color but does not show up. I used the grid method to sketch this on my canvas. You can see some of the charcoal lines
