Sometimes, real life gets priority over painting, and that was yesterday, so it turned out that I was back to doing two paintings in a single day. (And to be honest, I kind of like it because then I can experiment with all the rainbows at once!)
Today, I wanted to try straight(ish) lines going across diagonally. And I wanted to start with yellow.
In the middle of painting it, I decided I wanted to end it with yellow as well. But I also wanted to try playing with the plastic wrap again:
And what it looked like after I removed it:
Love the textural feel of this! But for this project, its too much white, so I corrected it, but still managed to maintain some of the texture. Then I started painting day 7, the padauk.
This tree flowers right around the time the Myanmar people celebrate the lunar new year and the Thingyan festival-- and the flowers are yellow. It pleased me that the rainbow I chose for it would feature so much of this color!
As I've done with each of the other pieces, I focused on the number seven, representing spiritual awakening and the collective consciousness, done on a background of rainbow colors as a bridge to the world tree, so there are seven leaves, seven blooming flowers, and 2 sets of seven buds waiting to blossom.
The seventh leaf on my world tree is the Bamars Padauk:
