Spring is here, and the swirls follow / by debbie rich

March 21st has passed in a blur — and swirl — of browns and green. I've jumped back into my second Big Swirl painting and finished painting the branches. Raw sienna, burnt sienna and indian red plus peach, beige, pale yellow, white and a bit of orange. Casually mix-mastering the colors while listening to my new favorite sci-fi book epic, Hyperion. Here's how the painting looked in December.
