I had been painting with somber, dark colors for a while and felt inspired by more colorful, playful colors this time around. I first decided to stick with pinks and corals for the background and decided to then add a blue, just a tad, I ended up adding more than I wanted to. I thought I ruined the background but it turned out to be so lovely, I did not regret it. I then let my brush guide the ribbon, snake looking shape. I decide where to add the geometric square motif after I have painted the main piece in this composition.
