Looking Toward Spring in New Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

Today I focused on finishing one of the two new abstract paintings I'd been working on.  First, I drew butterfly-like shapes in alizarin crimson, and then filled them in using water and a bit more paint on the brush.  I wanted a very translucent effect.

Next, I drew small berry-like circles in light blue violet and filled them in with a small brush.  I purposely covered over some of the brighter yellows with the butterflies and berries, allowing all the images to overlap.

Looking at the canvas, I felt it needed some lightening up.  I tried adding a few of the small circles in parchment, and liked that effect.  After adding more, I stepped back.  This might be finished.  What do you think?
