New Black and White Non-objective Paintings

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

I started working on some black and white non-objective paintings in the tall format canvases, 48" high by 10" wide.  Previously when I had painted in black and white, I let the colors mix, forming grays, and included grays and parchment in my definition of "black and white."

In these canvases, I wanted to have only black on white without them really mixing into other shades.  I also wanted to use simple, rather stark compositions, ala Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell. It's an experiment to see if this kind of painting format works for me.
