Hibiscus Lesson Number 12

I wasn't completely happy yet. The background looked too cool for the backdrop to this pink hibiscus. I decided to add an over all glaze of Aureolin Yellow to the entire background.

The glaze was 90 percent water and 10 percent pigment, meaning very, very faint and wet. This subtle glaze was just what I needed. The glaze warmed up the background and unified it. It is amazing what one wash can do to tie a painting together.

The final painting. Hope you enjoyed this one!
