A Series of Small Abstracts

When I finished my sycamore tree painting, I had a lot of interesting grays in the mixing well of my palette.  I don't like to waste the paint, so I used the original colors from the sycamore painting and a strip of paper from a cropped painting to create five small abstracts.  They tend toward landscape.  


From top to bottom:

Color Block:  3.5 x 4 in.
Abstract:  4.25 x 4 in.
Corn Field:  5 x 4 in.
Gray Field:  4 x 2 in.
Mountain:  4 x 3.5

I've done this before--see here.  I think for me, working small makes it easier to go more abstract.
