|Day 37 - Fan Palm #3, in Acrylic Paint|
I started with an under painting of red for the palm fronds thinking it might give more dimension to the painting, hoping the red would still be there, barely visible. I like this almost abstract painting and found it really interesting that the shape of the palm tree changed with each variation, getting further away from my sketch.
I then started building up layers of color and using white to lighten the colors - not something I can do with watercolor. I also like the way the palm fronds resemble the skirt of a ballerina!
