"DAY" 4 with my BEE © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

MY BEE..."DAY" 4 (I say DAY, but really...I get to spend an hour before I have to do something else...so, is it REALLY a day...:))
Detail
This has been an interesting piece to do...First of all to PLAN to sand down areas was fun...second, I am not wanting to do a "realistic" depiction of a bee as they are scary and yucky to me in real life...SO, I played with the honey bee photos I have and came up with a simplified, stylized bee that wouldn't be scary every time I walk past it...and third...I am thinking of colors that would go in MY space...that is a little daunting as I want to stay true to my bee piece, but I need it to serve a purpose as a jumping off point for a new room...(So, that last one isn't that big a deal...as I am REALLY staying true to my bee...while I think about my whole room...tee hee)

I have interesting things to consider before I finish this piece...I COULD introduce another color that would change the feel...or, I COULD leave the palette as is...Right now I like the palette...BUT, I've been playing with orange and purple...not together...IF I add purple it will cool the background more and perhaps make the contrast with bee more prominent (I like contrast)...IF I add orange it will tip the scale a bit more to warm...so, I decided that before I added more paper I would paint the bee and then decide about the papers...I like that...SO, here she is today... and when I get back from delivering some things I will be back at it!  FUN DOINS!!

HAPPY CREATING!
