Size:  3" x 4" - Deep birch board panel (hanging hardware attached)

You can barely see the photograph in the background on this one, but it's there! Just a wee bit of blue in the upper left corner. I added the dark blue through the top middle, and brought a light sap green up from the bottom. They're such powerful colours, I had to let them dry before I did anything else. It looks like there's a small bit of red tucked in behind, and I'm not sure if I did that before the blue or after the yellow. It's hard to tell.

And what brightens up a painting more than white and yellow? Um, like, nothing. I added the yellow first, with a light touch skimming over the blue and green, and in parts you can see right through the yellow. While it was still wet, I added the white over just a small portion, and let the entire piece dry.

The large streak of red skitters across the edge of the green at the bottom. I added a zigzag line with my small nib black pen, but it didn't stand out enough, so I grabbed red to run along the top of it. And dotted the rest of the piece with small portions of it as well. The last thing I did was run a white pencil crayon over most of it above the thin red line. It jumps over all the low points and just hits the high points, providing just a bit more depth. Because that's what this painting needed - more, more, more! LOL

It's a busy piece. No rest for the wicked. Maybe that's what I should have called it instead of "Day 194"?

It's a pretty little painting, perfect for a small spot in your office or little corner in your home. I love that these deep birch board panels stand on their own, or can be hung on the wall with just a push pin to hold them up.
