Frangrance in White

It seemed time to get back to some basics and for this I selected a lovely gardenia. I took the time to do a complete underpainting before adding any color. White flowers are perhaps the most difficult to paint but with an underpainting to clearly define tonal values all one needs is to determine if you want to end up with a warm or cool effect. I selected warm because the gardenia has very warm under tones...and they smell heavenly.
