Had to look up the meaning of Sunday's Child. . . or the Sabbath day. . . Yeah, I can see it here. This has a playful feel to it. Nice arrangement of shapes/marks.

This is an apparently serene composition, although I feel some nostalgic sentiments in it and a slow movement going with some sort of reminding it seems to describe. I absolutely love the sap green textured area and I wonder how You got that effect.

I absolutely love the sap green textured area and I wonder how You got that effect. Caesar...always fun to get your impression..glad you like the sap green area... not really a mystery .. I painted on a separate layer the greens and red browns, then lock the layer transparency to my subsequent work would be locked to the currently painted marks and then I chose a reddish-brown ( side note : for areas of work I use the color picker and keep the value in the midtones to light and select varying hues...without moving the lightness-Saturation ) and then stencil in a sponge like effect. I use this techinque a lot of my current works... I tend to find how to do something and then play it in the next dozen or so works..:):) I find that I like this also for "quiet" areas of subtle effect and variation and use other areas of flat color for highlights and accent / focal areas... and that blending generates a very satisfying overall effect.


Nicely done Gary, well thought out.
Geoff Geoff.. so glad you saw this and liked it..:):)
