Muscaris continued 3

Working on the bulbs and leaves.

Muscaris continued 2

I worked on the background, adding blue and red and ochre.
I redefined the leaves and onions with charcoal to prepare for the detailed work on them.
The colors are slightly off with the halogen light.
My challenge now is that the real plant is not in the same shape today than when I began to work on this painting.
