In my last post, I mentioned that I was working on a commissioned painting. I've finished laying down the underpainting and now I am beginning to add layers of color over it. In my original painting, the one called "Green" which is the inspiration for this work, I started with a magenta background so I decided to do the same for this large piece.
I like the energy that Magenta brings to it. Magenta represents universal love and harmony and just so happens to be the perfect color compliment for the greens I am painting with. There will of course be no magenta in the final painting, except for little bits peeking out here and there, like in the original. :-)
