Working with Geometric Shapes

Working with Cadmium Red as the base, this was supposed to be a monochromatic color scheme.  I’ve added white and black, plus I used cadmium yellow and made turquoise.  I usually doodle squares, but not like this.  I am actually thinking I will frame this.

Here is another little one that I made with some leftover paint.


Acrylic on gessoed Paper – 4 x 5.5″

These are great exercises and are recommeded in quite a few art books.  I will need to try these again in cooler colors.
