Recently my wife and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. To commemorate this occasion I painted a little something in lieu of a card. I am getting more and more into the mid-century modern style art and wanted to try my hand at it in this piece. I limited my pallet to 6 flat colors, next I want to try dropping it down to 3 or 4.
Here's a graphite transfer of the image.
A white wash (with a hint of blue) was painted over the whole background and then the flat colors added.
