Brunailles: A Grey Area.
|160310_35. 6" x 6". Acrylics on canvas|
Lately, I've been doing more and more 'brunailles', in other words, three colour paintings usually made in order to establish tone before glazing over with colour. I was captured by how much expression can be made without very much colour at all.
You can 'tip' the emphasis from cooler to warmer greys by adding more ultramarine or burnt sienna to the three colour mix -as you can see in the warmer, redder cast to the second painting.
