This week, I decided to limit the palette I used for the painting to test if a selection of similar colours and tones achieved anything in the sense of visual depth and the relationship between colours. I made a ‘mother ship’ colour of a creamy yellow-green which was then separated into smaller blobs of paint to which I added to. Additional hints varied between blues, burnt umber, raw sienna and more yellow to create slightly cooler and warmer tones.
The painting does fade in and out of itself. Warm and cool tones were carefully placed to push parts back and pull others forward. There is a slight glow as the ground colour (yellow). It doesn’t quite have the same effect as Passing Moments of Seasons (2016), however, I still need to work out what draws you in to it and what aspects that work in the painting.
