Seeing Red

With the background sky color painted in and dry, it is now time to begin painting the flag.   I decided to so with a wet-against-wet technique.  This will allow colors to blend on their own with each other creating some of the dark shadows and lighter areas of the stripe.   I have started laying in the reds of the flag, and I just love the way they are turning out.  What I found very interesting in this flag is how the white of the stripes pick up hints of the red and blue.   I will be adding that in next.   Moving along on the Stars and Stripes ……
