Need advice on BLUE
(Special note here: the flowers, the vase, AND the two shawls, I realized, were all gifts over the years from this wonderful big sister! Am I a lucky 'baby' sister?)
So now I have 30+ source photos which, because they all have my favorite colors (and sunshine), are breathtaking to me. I'd like to tackle at least ONE of them soon. But I've not painted blue very often or very successfully. So, I'm asking:
Looking at this source photo, typical of the ones I will choose from, do you have suggestions of the blues I should be using, and how to use them, to give them the life they deserve? (BTW - In stock I currently have ultramarine, cobalt, cerulean, indigo, and pthalo blues).
