used round flat tip sponge brushes(pouncers) for the background.. after bokeh affect of a sunset scene..
Start with white in the center of the sun and add yellow, and then eventually red.. try to blend the colors so that they wont appear like patches..

You can see the pouncer brush beside the painting, used different size brushes randomly..
The main colors used in this are yellow,red, white, and black.. Basically add black and white to your colors to make it dark and lighter..
For the stroke, you just dab the pouncer in the paint(Acrylics) and put it on the canvas, and rotate it so that you get a perfect round.. Keep repeating until you get the desired background…

…plan was to use the buttons you see in the bowl, on the painting. but changed at the end and settled with just a silhouette of a tree and birds..

This is how the background looked before adding the silhouette…

Finished version – After adding a simple silhouette of a tree with love birds.. it gave a real dimension to the background..

Just an illustration done in adobe to see how would the painting look on a wall…
