continuity

Here are three small canvases that I recently completed as a part of my Mountains Abstracted series.

Just as the square formats (from my previous post) introduced unique compositional challenges, so did these smaller sized paintings. In this case it was about how to get enough variety of shapes without being overwhelming in the small space.

I also enjoyed working with the variety of greens that are possible to create with this limited palette of yellow ochre, teal, purple, and white.


And here, just for fun, is a snap shot of the three canvases placed together - although please pardon my poor photo, I had randomly lined them up in preparation for varnishing when I noticed that they also worked as one continuous composition. I doubt I could have worked that out so well if I had been trying!

Thank you for your visit and kind comment, Martha! I am leaving this blog to hang out while I test the waters on my new blog, which is also on my website, nemcoskyart.com. It seems more cohesive doing it that way but it is hard to say goodbye to this old space :-)
