Paintober, Day 15 – Escapism

I began today’s postcard by swirling raw umber with a sponge until the entire surface was covered, then added layers of cobalt blue and vermilion. I washed away roughly half the paint, carved out portions with a palette knife, and then sprinkled a thin layer of purple towards the center.

The jagged edges remind me of an egg cracking, of discovering freedom after an extended period of confinement.
