Stargazer


"Discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."

This is a commission I just finished. It is to be a birthday present. I usually paint the entire canvas red before I begin a painting. This one is no exception. I like the way the red shows through in places. In this one, I left more red showing than usual-----the edges around the flower---and spots in the background. It is 6" x 6" done in acrylic.

Georiana, I really like the halo of red from the underpainting...When I started underpaintin on my work, it made such a difference! This one glows!
