Happy Yet?

Happy Yet?
Oil on 6x6 inches stretch canvas

This painting gave me fits. I struggled to be happy with the form and coloring. I finally went to Bob Burridge's color wheel and settled on purple (dominant), orange (spice color), blue (spice color) and yellow-green (focal point) along with white and black. Happy? Well, let's say happier.

Here's where it was before:

I initially drew the flower with acrylic ink.

Then I applied a thin layer of oils. Boring! Using the color wheel allowed for a dramatic change. Frustrating but fun.
