Abstract 010717

This is the third painting with my ‘purple, blue, yellow’ palette. I did not apply too many layers of paint atop the initial brush strokes in this composition. I liked the original, underlying forms and did not want to obscure them. In addition to the yellow earth tone, quinacridone nickel, I used bismuth yellow, which is a more opaque pigment.

The added just a bit of vermilion red toward the bottom, where the central form changes from Q yellow to cobalt blue.
