More Work on New Tall Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

I continued my plan for this new abstract painting, drawing lines in shades of blue, cobalt green, aqua and lime, then filling in the shapes I created with the lines.   By using a small brush and dipping it in a bit of water, I was able to blend the paint for a translucent effect. 

After I finished, I felt the "bottom to top" approach in grading the colors conflicted with the "inner to outer" approach I'd used on the background.  So I lightened up each color in the top center by adding a lighter color to it.  I also added darker colors to the outer edges.  The effect is subtle, but I think it helps.
