Revising My New Green and White Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

This new painting in green and white felt too monochromatic to me when I looked at it the next day.  So I began to jazz it up with bright yellow, cadmium orange, and pthalo green.  This time instead of a palette knife, I used a brush.

I ended up covering over almost the whole canvas, though the basic composition remained. I let the colors blend, so that the yellow, white and green became a lime green in places. 

I painted the background over with parchment, and added that to the mix of colors in the main composition.  Then I added lines in Prussian blue, feathering them with the brush.

Even though this painting is now signed, I will keep working on it, as I already see things that I don't like about it.

  Painting #187, 24" x 24" acrylic on canvas.
