Abstract B

When I first applied the Peacock blue and bismuth yellow today, I was struck by the color they made when they came together. I kept two pools of yellow relatively isolated. Not much of the original blue remained, however.  After this yellow-blue figure thoroughly dried, I dripped red directly to the blue areas. I did not want to get a muddy color by allowing the red to mix with its complement, green.

I like the purple mix in several of the drip traces. I also like red-orange trace overlapping one of the yellow areas.

When I rotated the paper 90 degrees, I saw the abstract ‘B’.
