I think two roads diverged in the woods. I started with one color story. And ended with another. Not sure if I merged them amicably. Yesterday I started three panels, all with the same palette. What I added today, is more muted.

Overall I am happy with this. I am holding it as a WIP though. The lines on the right are sort of bothering me. Sharp diagonals, and the horizontal line of the striped area at the top. Let me know what you think. Are they a problem?

The title comes from this long mind trip… I wanted to do more of a Burridge type bouquet. Bob reminds me of my Dad. Dad loves music from the 50’s and I grew up listening to that. The song popped (Yes Dotty, popped, he he.) into my head, and there you have it.

I considered adding a touch of indigo to this. Instead I drew tiny turquoise circles. Acrylic, Caran d’Ache, texture sheet, collage, some finger painting. Used a palette knife for the first layers. Random marks.

Feeling like this might be a work in progress. The collage shape is nudging at me. I may add more Flesh tone to balance or conceal. Loving the pinkish, peachy flesh color, “Natural Buff”. But it does not scan as well as it looks in person. It is warm, and not too feminine. Or maybe it is. What do you think?

Day two is through?
