I started another wrapped box and will give this one a black background. I think it needs a bit more ooph to the painting.
Again, using a lot of oranges and reds and yellows in the combination of colors.
After adding the background in with Lamp Black (and getting a bit messy at the edges of the box), I played with getting more dimension to the ribbon but it's not as good as the first one.
Another 8" x 10" on Fabriano 140# hotpress watercolor paper.
