Grayscale Magnified Pinwheels

This is the first time I painted a quilt I had previously made. Some quilters have this done before...I admired them taking a risk after all the work. I wondered if I would ruin a perfectly good quilt. I am very pleased with the results.The grays make the pinwheels pop even more.
The bottom is the before picture.
