This little 5×5 piece was a result of making one of my papers smaller. I didn’t want to waste paper, so I decided to do a small painting, but what to paint on it. I figured a single flower would be the best solution, and it was nice practice in getting all the variations of yellow. The secret … It’s actually not all yellow. There’s some orange too. I also had to use a brownish yellow. So many layers and colors for just this 5×5 piece. Of course there are parts of it that I don’t like. I’m an artist. It’s just one of the things that happens. Never being completely satisfied with it. Oh well.
So, lesson of the day, when you think something is just one color, think again. I used variations and mixtures of different yellows, browns, oranges, and reds, and that was just for the flower on a 5×5 piece of paper.
