After giving my hand a "day off" from painting I was able to get back to the easel today....although my shoulder told me later it was too soon so I won't be working on the trio of orchids - today. Lots of blahness outside. Snow pack remains in my yard and it's grey skies outside so I mixed up a bunch of different yellows, reds and white to work the canvas with. Mind you this is just an underpainting so it's still very rough. Don't worry if you don't "get it" at this point. It's missing a lot of detail in this stage.
