Late Summer Hydrangea step by step demo

Here are the six stages of the painting. Starting with my photo and then the drawing with some flowers masked out.

At the drawing stage, I drew around the outside of the flower mass first and then put the details of the separate florets in.
I laid a wash wet in wet to start with and then gradually worked into that first wash defining the negative spaces, mostly and then finally putting detail into the flower and leaf forms.
