Whew! I’m so behind on posting artwork! Recently I was commissioned to do a zipcode painting. 38652 is our zipcode here in my hometown:) I decided to do the painting in the style of several other paintings I’ve done, like this “Thank You” painting.
In these type paintings I use a dark background and vibrant patterned papers. I then paint them with matching colors and leave a bit of negative space around everything. This comes across so much more whimsical than a simple dark outline.
I painted this one to match the colors in some other artwork I had done for the customer. Here is the finished product:
