20 in 20: Birthday Bash Giveaway, Day 6

For Day 6 I did a bright and warm version of a previous painting. It’s a swooping composition that feels very festive and celebratory.

Day 6 of my 20 in 20 Giveaway


This is a gouache painting on a 6in square piece of Arches 90lb paper. The painted portion goes right to the edge of the page!

A note on color: I do my best adjust the color of the digital images to match as closely as possible, but it’s tricky business. Compared to the image above, the color is not as flat in person. The pink is actually the darkest color, the orange is the mid tone, and the yellow is the lightest (and is more golden than it appears here).

If you like this painting, leave a comment on this blog post and you’ll be entered to win it. It’s as easy as that! For more information about the giveaway, read the Giveaway Details below.

Many thanks to Abbey Hendrickson from Aesthetic Outburst for providing the inspiration for this project!
