Painting in Progress

This is going to be a photo heavy post today. I want to show you this painting in progress. It is still not complete but it is to the point where I am going to stop and decide what I want to do next.

Here it is after the layers of color were added.

Adding shapes

Filling in with white paint. Very hard to paint over the background this way. It makes me worry if I will mess the whole thing up doing this, but then I have to remember that it is just paint.

The pattern is starting to make itself shown.

At this point I really like how it is turning out. The contrast of light and dark is starting to make me happy.

Here is a better view of how it is going to turn out.

Here it is at the point where I think it will stop at, for now. I think I will add some more black of gray to it to add shadows and shading to bring out the pattern a little more.

Here a close up to show the texture of the piece.

I like the pattern that you put on top of the layers of color. It looks like a lot of work.

This is fabulous..and visually entrancing..the pattern definately carries alot fo energy and guides the eye to follow it..it acnhors the piece! gorgeous colors and expression!
