“Virgo”

Here’s my husband’s birth sign:
img_3798 He requested to incorporate his favorite colour: green. So I complied with his request. It was used predominantly in the centre of the painting.

Then the green is extended by subtle edging on the sides:

Finally it was used as an iridescent highlight layer over for the star-sign :

Heres another detail shot:

Originally when I thought of doing these pieces, I wanted to do the star-signs in gold or silver metallic paint. I guess I could have done them here, but I thought it would be more harmonious if I kept the signs themselves white (since, they are going to be grouped together). Instead I chose to incorporate small variations, in the subtle highlighting of the signs via iridescent overlay. I guess we’ll see if it was a good decision or not when they are grouped.

Stay tuned for the last of this mini series featuring my star-sign😀
Have a good weekend!
