We put down layer after layer of color without thinking about the end result, without expectations or a plan. We also alternated warm and cool colors in the beginning to avoid muddiness.
There were many layers like those above and then we added symbolism - again just following our heart and not putting too much thought into it.
Those two shapes a little down and to the left of the middle represents hummingbirds. They're supposed to be tenacious, protective, stronger than they look. And their wings beat in the shape of the infinity symbol so they also represent eternity.
Some close ups!
I am not finished yet...I have no idea when it'll be finished or how it'll look. I have another canvas I'm still playing with too. But painting this way is so freeing and scary. I loved it. Thanks Flora!
