PRESENT NO. 3

Changed some colors on this one and I think it doesn't quite make it - yet.  We'll see how it turns out.



I'd like the green to be a deep, rich, velvety green instead of the sap green it is now.  Will have to work on that.  And decide on how far up I want the background to go.  (The red right now is the underpainting for the shadow shapes and won't be so bright when I go over it with another color.)

I am liking the voluminous bow on this one....

For a dark velvety green, try combinations of bismuth yellow and paynes gray.

Wish I'd read this before continuing to work - but I'll keep it in mind for next time, Linda :) Thanks!

Cynnie, this one has gone through A LOT of changes and it's not very good but I'll show it anyway...next post.
