Limiting Color, and Enjoying it!

acrylic on unsized canvas 90x90cm

oil on canvas 90x110cm

These new paintings were an experiment in limiting color. I really enjoy working this way and think that I'm not interested in color as much as texture, and gesture. I mixed my own colors.The background grey of this one is made from cadmium red, dark green, Prussian blue, and titanium white.  It has the drab, smog-like Milan color I was going for.
