Giant Sun Spot

I discovered some Fredrix round canvases a few years ago and started creating what my daughter Kelsey appropriately named Sun Spots. I usually work on 5 inch diameter canvases but this giant guy was created on a 20 inch diameter canvas.

I gesso the canvas with black gesso and then create the image using colored pencils. I have to varnish them in order to keep the colored pencil from easily rubbing away. The rays are anything from ribbons to yellow pencils to forks depending on my mood. This big guy has lots of little, 5 inch brothers and sisters. Now I am itching to order some more big rounds and give him an even bigger family.
