Changing Palette

My palette changes with availability of paint. My abundant transparent earth tones (iron oxides, mainly), merge nicely with the blues I have. Today’s study began with iron oxide washes blending with blues ranging from greenish (turquoise) to reddish (ultramarine). Between the ultramarine shape and the red iron oxide, I laid in cadmium orange to accentuate the edge of the blue.

Abstract 092317
12″x9″ 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Block

This composition contains rounded (organic) forms and arcs in combination with more staccato outlines of irregular shapes. I like how they interact.
