This is my July entry into Ria Hills "Shoot and Paint" challenge.  We were to take her photo of the American flag and interpret it in our own way.  Since I was working on a 6 x 6 canvas panel, I decided to change the shape of the impressionistic flag I was going to do.  I first covered the board in a transparent orange.  When it dried I added Indian yellow under the "white" stripes, Alizarin Crimson under the "red" stripes, and Caribbean blue under the star patch.  Then I mixed pools of darks, mediums and lights to mix up both the red stripes and the white stripes.  For the "stars" I used dots of white on the mixed blues background.  This is also my early entry to Paint Party Friday.  See what Eva & Kristin have going on this week. View the tremendous artwork.  This is also my first of two posts to Jennifer Mclean's The Artist's Playroom. Come by tomorrow to see my second challenge entry.
