It all started with this drawing from 1996. I'd never been too happy with it and it wasn't aging too well so I figured that I might as well play with it a bit.
I couldn't find my watercolors so I gabbed my acrylic paints and began adding those.
I found the early results promising so I continued adding other paints.
Looking back I think I should have stayed with the blue background.
I'm not quite sure why I went with the dark background except that I didn't like how the purple looked next to the blue.
I got carried away adding leaves and blades of grass which tilted the balance too far to the green.
I added more flowers to try to balance the colors a bit better.
I'm not sure how successful the finished painting was but I felt it was a useful exercise and it may work out yet. I plan to try it on a few products on Zazzle to see what it looks like in different shapes and sizes to see what happens.
Wish Me Luck
