"Colors" --- SOLD
I started twice on this one, wiping off the first attempt. Sometimes wiping can be the best tool towards a good painting. When I start over, I'm usually more open to stepping outside my comfort zone and trying something new. So this time, with the orange specifically, I scrubbed in a middle orange color right off the bat. I went way outside the edges of the orange with the color. Then I came in with the blue around it to define the edges, but only loosely. Then I painted the rest of the orange, and only then finished up with the edges. I'm very happy with the effect.
