This is the painting as it is going along. I think the sand dunes are done plus the "Japanese fire" which is really just a pink flat field in the middle of an illusion. Of 3D space on a static 2D surface trick then the flatness smacking up against the viewer, sort of. A curtain? A repoussoire, so to speak.
PLUS I've learned to put a layer with my name on the images! I sort of knew but there was one click I was missing.
|flowers going great.|
The flowers are next to add
to the painting. I am so old fashioned!
