Portrait of a little boy

In the beginning stage. Somehow I already like it even at this stage. I think it's his smile!

Crocus - Step by step

Crocus~5"x7"~Oil on Canvas panel~Aruna Nitin
I painted this last year but never got around to post it. I have added step by step pictures taken during different stages of painting. Happy Spring!

 The crocus are such delicate flowers, I decided to keep the background fresh and simple. I painted a light wash of contrasting yellow for background.
 Painted the petals one by one.
 Added the leaves.

That completes it!
