Morning ritual

Here in Key West, our daily paper, the Key West Citizen, is a morning paper.  Our coffee of choice is Cafe Bustelo. I had sunflowers leftover from my painting class and thought they'd look pretty in the can. Plus I needed some still life practice.  

Here is the progression of the painting:
The initial block in is on a blue violet ground.

The major shapes are blocked in, but there are still corrections to make.

The finished painting.
