Asters, Cut Apples

I tried for the same basic composition as the last ones (mid vertical, tied to the sides) but without saturated color. This one was better 10 minutes before I stopped, even though that would have left some things undone that seemed necessary at the time. A good thing about painting glass is that you are forced to integrate the many shapes into the whole to get coherence, so it makes you see the shapes flat. Also, I understand there is pretty much only one stroke available for each shape, so it should be correct the first time. I am loving these little asters, so humble, easy to paint and lasting a long time too. Because the petals are so fine, there's no way to paint them, you have to paint the broader form and it makes getting it right easy.
