I finally finished up this canvass this week. This painting and the last seem to be from me working through issues - political and personal. BUT - I do have an idea in mind that will be "less weight".
"Nurturing Hope" - 14" X 18"
This is a somewhat restricted palette -
burnt sienna and iridescent gold for the skin-tones with just a bit of added white; and burnt sienna and dioxazine purple for the shading. There is also just a bit of carbon black with the purple for the darkest areas. And finally, iridescent pearl for the flame.
