Quite a few more hours' work later... Here's the finished quarter sheet version of "Edge of Summer"! I'm really happy with the different level of emphasis I was able to give the center flower and the left flower behind it, and I'm happy with how the background integrated with the upper right corner flower. Working on a smaller study definitely helps to work out the process and the procedures when tackling larger paintings like this for me!
