I love this technique and can't wait to try it more.  It's fall now, so not as many wildflowers, but we have a beautiful persimmon tree in our backyard, so I painted those.  The quick shape and value studies really helped me work out the composition and were a very useful part of the process. Thanks so much and can't wait to try more! 

Update: I just added a few more images of the persimmon tree. I'm obsessed!
