State of Being Alphabet | L is for Lascivious

This painting was meant to represent a different word  and it was intended to be dark grey and black but I was drawn to the word lascivious (adj. lustful) and it just evoked ‘pink’ so it seemed more fun to paint.  I painted over the grey with a red/ orange first to try and make it glow from underneath. You can just barely see the grey in the middle area.

I loved seeing this painting come together while I added each layer of red / pink.  My favourite part would be the bottom left corner with the texture / highlights and dark tones.
