The Anatomy of a Painting by Gill Miller

The painting The Key of Life is fairly well developed here, and at this time however I was unsure of the red block at top. I'm a fan of combining red and orange in the right context. This seemed a little too color saturated.

I worked on this canvas for almost six weeks, finally changing the red to this creamy off-white and adding these two Greek Keyish shapes. This is where the title of the painting, The Key of Life came from.
