So much red seems a bit overwhelming but necessary to deal with at this stage. I have begun to indicate the patterned fabric background and it is going to change the feel of this piece very much. The background colour of the fabric is an off white. I am hoping it does not end up being distracting. It can always get painted out again. The beauty of making art is that changes are allowed. Where else in life can you experiment so freely, take chances, try ideas without fear of
catastrophic outcomes? It's only paint.
