Days 72-77

Process, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush. Canvas paper (wrong side of paper for Day 72, featured above; correct side Days 73-77, featured below).

The Backstory: I’m continuing to create more permutations of the lotus flower center (by color, size, and composition). These images will then be used as part of the composite images.

Day 70

Process, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush. Canvas paper (wrong side of paper).

The Backstory: The blue on red lotus image was a success, so I decided to give it a shot with another color combination. I also decided to try using the back of the canvas paper again, which unfortunately buckled a fair bit under 2 layers of paint.

Day 68: Oops

Process, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush. Canvas paper.

The Backstory: I made a mistake. I started painting negative space with red, and I got carried away and crossed into the shadow. So I ran with it, covering the entire 4×4 with paint. Afterwards, I painted the negative space with dark blue. The colors really pop! As usual, my “oops” moment results in a new discovery.
