[no title]

Winsor & Newton CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

this piece is also like some of richter's watercolors. i limited myself to a basic green/scarlet contrast, with some blue added as accents, and a dark olive green as a border color.

i would have liked to work the piece much longer and give it greater depth, but wasn't sure how to proceed. looking back, i've treated all the abstracts as exercises or gestures; in simple designs this works, but in a complex painting like this one i think you really have to put some time into it to make it live.
