These two paintings belong to my Limited Vocabulary Series, created for Weekend at the Galleries in Silver City, NM, Oct. 7-9. Each piece is designed around a series of “blocks”, arranged and rearranged until the balance is just right. The series is so titled as each painting employs only two colors plus black and white. I find an incredible range of colors can be created using these simple base pigments. Of course, I select colors that when blended with each other, blend harmoniously…yummy.
These two paintings combine yellow and crimson and gold and crimson. If I use a blue-toned black with the gold or yellow, the result leans toward green…such a wide range of options.
I have 20 pieces (almost) completed…some still need their finish…varnish…and still need to be photographed…phew! Sizes range from 36×36 to this 12×12 size….more coming this week…from the studio, the overflowing studio
