Backgrounds 31-33 - Three Works in Progress

Yesterday I was painting an abstract in acrylic and rather than waste the leftover paint I used it for background on a couple of canvases.

Background 31

For the first one I used yellow ochre with a little alizarin crimson and Hansa yellow.

Background 32

The second one was of the various mixtures of greyed Cobalt blue with a little yellow ochre.

Background 33

The final was a combination of the greyed Cobalt blue, the orange made from Hansa yellow and alizarin crimson and the remaining yellow ochre.

I will post each of these backgrounds at a later date once I decide what I am going to paint on the canvases.
