This Shibui has proven to be quite the challenge, and I wanted to show it to you. I am working on it with a light application of color. What makes it hard is there are a lot of equal-sized events and no main events.
My thought is to make the colors I use work as the events within the foundation itself. This is requiring very delicate work in between all those equal-sized events of blue chicory flowers. How to make them be more realistic as real chicory appears is also a part of the issue if they are indeed to be chicory. Real Chicory is not a single flower as these appear to be at this point. Real Chicory has tall stems with flowers at a distance from one another. This would mean building stems through intentional work on the Chicory close to the viewer. That would help the illusion of the Lupine-like flowers behind them.
Once I am confident of what comes next I can begin working it with the darker colors. Build in more leaves and stems through supportive intentional work. Outlining brings what you outline closer to you.
An absence of larger leaves should be addressed as well. How to build them in and where? This is where Dura-Lar will help. They will need to be darker to work well. Larger leave opportunity far right corner? Some of the spaces? Otherwise, it is over the top of what was worked. This is one of those tough puzzles to be solved.
