Next stages, next series


Here's this series

with white and black added.


Here's the third series I started, with warmer colors. I'm thinking these will get a cool color accent somewhere in the process…


And here's a fourth series using a darker, warm gray to start:


That I had to brighten up. I also used white around the edges for some quiet space.

Not sure where any of these are going next, but I'm having fun!



Deli paper print abstract series 1


I was inspired by Jane Davies' video using deli paper prints as a way to start paintings, so much so that I've got three series going now. Here in the first, I use cheap acrylic in a celedon (I think mine is Italian Sage) like Jane did.

I've always liked the combination of celedon, dark blue, and purple, so I used it here with Indian yellow hue, which I really like as contrast.


I'm not sure where these are going but I feel like leaving them fairly 'rough'.
