Hydrangea in Progress, Creating Contrast 2

Here I have worked through most of the mid-value blues and began to pull out or paint in some details in the pedal shapes. Value is relative to the other values in the painting. So I will need to add dark values to the background before I can determine how dark to make the shadows. I am working to have a balance of soft shapes, lost-and-found edges, and sharp contrast areas.
