Paintober, Day 14 – Embers

I’m nearly though my acrylics set, but there are colors I don’t use frequently. I began today’s postcard, therefore, with several coats of burnt sienna applied with a sponge. The umber spirals in the corners are the most heavily-affected by flame, and the titanium white near the center is still unspeakably hot despite the fact that it’s late in the evening and the fire is dying.

The pink and lime shreds are caught in-between intense rage from the heat and the inevitable stillness only moments away.
