I'm in the middle of my "Rainbows Promise Love" series aaaaand something else took over. I just had to do it. Watch to see how I painted it. (Each video is less than 30 seconds.)
As you can see, I started as always by sketching in the letters and the rose. This one was a real challenge and I added a lot of flourishes to integrate a few of the awkward spots.
Then I posted it on Facebook and asked for color suggestions. People suggested apricot, pink, yellow, Indian yellow, grayish periwinkle, sage green and fuchsia. I think I got them all in!
So yes, I am cheating. I am starting a new series while I'm in the middle of another one. What can I say? Art takes you where it takes you. Back to the rainbows soon, I promise.
It's just that I love the super romantic feeling of this picture.
