"B is for Bougainvillea" was a fun piece of art to create but, honestly, very trying. I added layer upon layer of paint, scratched out occasionally (sgraffito) and added on and in. Very complex. The bougainvillea is a magnificent plant to see -- very tall at times and full of life and colors. I find that they are almost impossible to paint in traditional media, oils or pastels for me, but that using glass paints and layering, I can get the effect I want.
