Triptych in Blue

As I mentioned before, I am working my way through my substrates.  I have so much, that I am not allowing myself to purchase any more until they are all used up (or mostly all used up).  I’ve had a set of 3 panels for some time now.  Whatever made me purchase them, I have no idea, but since I have them I had to use them.  So this is what we got:

IMG_4466Acrylic and Collage on Canvas – 40x45cm (16×17.5 inches)

Sorry about the quality of the photograph, but it has been a dull and rainy day today and I really wanted to show you what I have been doing.  This painting is actually a bit more vibrant.  I will try and get a better one if the sun ever comes out anytime soon.  I have been using the leftover paint from this one on a smaller canvas board – 10×12 inches.  Here are some closeups of the panels.

While painting the previous stripes paintings, I remembered something about myself that I had forgotten, and that is I really like stripes (and grids).  There is order in a straight line and containment in a grid (although the lines above are not particularly straight). So I will be experimenting with lines and grids for the foreseeable future.  Here I used 3 different blues, some straight out of the bottle/tube and mixed with white/black. I also used yellow to make a green.  Hmmm, I wonder how many different blue paintings I can make?
