Here is a detail of painting in progress, Gold with Quadrants.  In this painting I am using permanent gold ink.  "Gold" is used as a color rather than a "highlight"--in some light it appears as ocher, in other light it shimmers.

Gray with Blue, Green, and is finished!

The linear vertical gray areas and the "blobs" of blue, green, and other colors create pulses of contrast.  These differences morph when viewing from either up close or at a distance.

The "new painting" is now titled "Gray with Red and Blue."

When I started this painting I had no idea how it would look.  The palette-triangles that I created (see previous blog post) were totally different from anything I had made before.

In a number of previous attempts, I had created palette-triangles similar to those used here, but the spots of color were too close together (almost like a pointillist painting).  Leaving more space between spots of color allowed the negative space to come forward and the color spots to form new shapes when reassembled.

Have been working steadily on Umbra. An unusual color palette for me.

The original color palette triangles have an india ink-"drawn" or "written" under layer placed in a vertical direction. That is countered by the horizontal direction of color. The india ink under layer emerges unexpectedly.

During the process of creating a painting, I struggle with the randomness and purposeful placement of colors.  Sometimes a color or pattern emerges and I strive to find a way to expand on that theme looking for these patterns in the "palette-triangles" that form each painting.

Confluence. Blue. Lavender. Ocher. is the title of this painting in progress. Lavender emerges from beneath layers of blue, ocher, and lines of a multiplicity of other colors.
