I continue to focus on the mid-to-bottom section of the painting.
In this close-up view, you can see where I added the gold donut-like shape. I wanted to create a mixed illusion of either the round blue circle being above the gold shape or that the gold shape really has a hole in it and that you’re looking through to the blue section which covers from the right of the gold shape all the way to the left of the green dented shape.
To give the green dented shape a little more depth, I colored in a shadow into the wheat-colored area. In warmer colored sections, I use prismacolor black cherry to create the shadow and then color over it with the color(s) that were beneath it. In this case I colored the wheat-colored section prismacolor yellow ochre, goldenrod and canary yellow.
