Added a splash more colour to the background of "Innocence And Experience" from the 'Wallflowers" series of oil paintings I'm working on.
I enjoyed painting the fancy pink flowers, and they matched the look I was going for - old wallpaper styling of the 50s/60s. However, moving on to the various green leaves on the vines I just couldn't settle on the right shades at first, as each particular type needs to have it's own little palette.
When it came to the leaves in the middle of the two guys, the ones that are wrapping around the flower head, I thought, why not embolden them with some lines. They look a little blurry at moment, but i'm thinking of them a couple of layers from now, with added detail, and hopefuly they'll look pretty sweet.
Hope you're having a creative day!
