Like Switzerland

Neutrals have dominated my palette lately. I really have no explanation. I still like color but I like using neutrals to "whisper" in my non-verbal voice.
Here are a few that I have completed recently.

The subtle differences in grays either from the tube or mixed, fascinates me. I had a mostly gray and green painting and on a whim added beige to the edges and it made the grays "bloom" and separate themselves from one and other.
