Painting "Old Glory" (see my Sept. 18th post) was so enjoyable for me, I've begun another flag painting. This one, 8x8 inches is on gallery wrap canvas with the design carried around to the sides. I'm going to take my time. So far the canvas being a bit rougher than what I normally use lends itself well to keeping the flag's cotton texture an important part of the painting. My ground is burnt umber.
This is the result of my first painting session. I'll keep posting as it progresses, and hope everybody finds it interesting and informative.
