More Small Paintings

These are done with acrylics on gessoed paper. I also used interference colors to add another dimension. The paintings are actually more subtle that the photos suggest as you can only see the interference colors from the right angle when the light hits them just right.

New Small Paintings/ Studies

It's been a couple of years since I last painted. I just didn't feel inspired to create using that medium and I was having fun working in other mediums during that time. Last weekend I bought some nice wood panels at Utrecht. I've been eyeing those panels for a long time but couldn't justify buying them when I wasn't actually painting. I bought three 6"x 6" panels to start. I didn't want to start too big as these are really supposed to be little studies and exercises to get me going again. I'm not sure if they are finished yet or if they need more. My initial intent was to paint with whites but I don't think I was very successful. I'm not sure how to actually go about doing it but I will keep trying as I have some larger paintings that need that treatment.
