Circles – 10/21/08

For today’s session, I’ve jumped back down to the mid-bottom section of the painting.

I love playing with creating depth and dimension.  Mostly I do this with coloring in shadows.  Some of the shadows make sense (meaning I have a consistent shadow direction) others are put it because it feels like there should be a shadow there.  For ‘shadow’ purists, this painting may cause some agitation.

For the green, purple and light blue sections, I wanted to create a flow of one into the other.  To make that happen I burnished the colors in the same direction and added shading in the same areas of each.  Then I made the shadow follow the same flow.
