|Jumping someone else's train 30 x 40 oil on linen by Kerry Steele|
I finished two paintings last week that took until today to photograph properly.
I use the word properly rather loosely because the most pale colors, where there is a variety of subtle color, do not show up. This is just the nature of things.
In the first painting, "Jumping someone else's train" the areas that appear white are actually "linen gray" and "gray green" Charvin colors.
I know someone will want an explanation of the title. I was listening to The Cure's first album Boys don't cry. It just worked for me.
|"Relatively chronic" 36 x 36 oil on canvas by Kerry Steele|
In "Relatively chronic" I used white, vulcan gray, green gray and linen gray as the background which appears to white. The blacks are actually four different colors too. Payne's gray, sepia, mars black and vulcan gray.
Using an old gift card to apply the paint and gain a bit of different texture was a new thing for me.
I am kind of enjoying these color studies that appear to involve just two colors until you look more closely.
These two need another week or two to dry before they go in the shop.
