Hmm. I’m thinking that I want to play around with negative space more, here. But this is…the first actual attempt at “painting” that I’ve done in a while.
I had intended just to start out with another attempt at cataloging green mixes, then realized that I did not have to stick expressly with squares. Then I realized that I did not have to confine myself to mixtures of just two colors — so I can adjust any two with whatever else I need to get to the point at which I want to be.
I think that vivid green in top center is Cobalt Turquoise Light + Hansa Yellow. I think. I’ve also had some success with mixing greens using Hansa Yellow Deep as a component (which surprised me, because it seems to lean orange).
I’m actually kind of amazed at the depth this image provides me. I’ve decided to stop for the night, in case I’m overworking this. I’m planning to look at it again tomorrow and see what I want to add to it.
🙂 But yes — this patterning could turn out even better if I can pay attention to the shapes of negative spaces…and maybe try and not lock myself into a pattern, so much…
