Here's a quick vignette flower composition layout on tracing paper using some of my old poppy drawings. Using tracing paper is a wonderful aid in placement of the stars of the show. Notice how the background leaves are downplayed here. If I do a painting, they will be of mid value, have lost and found edges and be in less sharp focus than the main actors. The main flowers will be large light value with a small dark. It is a basic value pattern and one of my favorites.
