Small Abstracts

I've also been working on a series of abstracts.  This is a small painting called Lunar.  It's about 3inches by 3 inches and has 4 colors.  From Daniel Smith there's carbazole puple, rhodonite red, and permanent yellow deep.  Then, from Maimeri Blu, I believe, burnt umber.  It was an experiment to see how the pure color would go down and mix.    The paper is Arches 300 lb cold press.  I was especially happy with the way the bleeds across the colors worked.
