Today's Featured Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

Today's featured abstract painting was completed in 2006.  First the background was painted and allowed to dry.  It has a an open feeling because I used a lot of water to blend the small amounts of browns, white and parchment paint I used.

Next the central grid-like image was painted in a loose, expressionist style.  The titanium white contrasts sharply with the raw and burnt umber.  The cobalt green and burnt sienna provide highlights, as well as a touch of cadmium red and Prussian blue.

The burnt umber lines drawn in acrylic paint help define the composition.
