Red Nebula - Overpainted

Yesterday, I showed this piece with printing I was unhappy with.  I decided to overpaint the edges to create some more fire-like areas.  I used the most opaque red I had - an irridescent red Speedball screen printing ink that is recommended for dark colors.  I just brushed it on with a paintbrush while it hung on my design wall.

I think this is a significant improvement, but I am not done with it, yet.  More next week.

Definitely like the overpainting you did on it. Can't wait to see it finished.
