untitled Finch Paining - Step 2

I am almost done the bird (just his little legs are left) and now I am starting to work on the apple blossoms.  Slow and steady...  and the blossoms are actually turning out not to bad!  They are a mix of indigo blue, garnet, cobalt blue, and a purple (just can't remember the name of the one I am using).  I do have to admit that Daniel Smith garnet is my new favourite reddish pigment (and besides, it is also my birthstone!)
