Foggy Field



Foggy Field, 7 x 5
.
This is the second of four small "color studies" I did to experiment with muted, foggy tones. As explained in my last post, for these experiments I limited myself to two colors (plus white), and mixed them together to find interesting greyish blends. In this one, I used green and violet. (Okay technically, both of those colors were mixed first out of primaries, but I limited myself from that point on.)

How glorious.

We are having pure blue sky sunshine here. But soon I'll be seeing this kind of scene when I drive up into the country to go to work.

It always takes my breath away. And so does your painting.

XOXOXOXBarbara

Your fog series is wonderful. I love your idea of limiting yourself to two colors plus white. The effect is so soothing.
