Color study


I've been wanting to paint something for my daughter and son-in-law to commemorate their little angel daughter, Moran. The palette in Owen's room consists mainly of bold primary colors. I wanted to portray her looking down on them from above. The butterflies, yet to be colored, represent her flight from this earthly existence, freed from the cocoon (her body) that contained her spirit. This is just a rough color study.
