ORANGE!

For orange, I did some art on 9x12" watercolor paper in a roundabout way. First I had an orange-red frame of acrylic paint, then I drew a mandala in black paint. Hated it. Poured a major blob of gesso on top, covered it, and started painting another orange-yellow frame. Then I scraped the paint, while wet over the goopy gesso, with a wierd straw I found at a tex-mex restaurant bar. That gave it texture. Then, finally, the new mandala and more paint.

 

YELLOW!

 I painted yellows on 9x12" watercolor paper in fluid acrylics... let them dry for a few hours then lettered a quote with gellyrolls.

Please post your link(s) to your artwork in ORANGE and your artwork in YELLOW (you can link twice, if they are in separate posts), as we begin creating our rainbow. {please link to the exact post, not the blog home page}
