Background 73-75 - Three Works in Progress

A number of things happened today starting with it raining and the temperature rose to 41F (5C), but this isn't going to last for long as the wind came up during the afternoon and the temperature started to drop and we are to have snow overnight.

With my driveway covered in ice due to the thaw, walking on it tomorrow to do the barn chores is going to be treacherous.

The following backgrounds are the created from unused paint from yesterday's acrylic painting.

Background 73

This background was made using Hansa yellow, yellow ocher and a small amount of ultramarine blue.

Background 74

Ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, alizarin crimson and titanium white were used on this background painting.

Background 75

This piece was made using cadmium red, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna and titanium white.

I had plans to complete some of my acrylic paintings at St. Matthews church in Buckhorn with the Tuesday Painting Group, but once Heather and I arrived there we found that there was a leak in their gas heating and they had the doors open so we wouldn't succumb to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Needless to say we didn't stay very long and by the time I dropped Heather off at her house and returned home I was no longer motivated to paint.

But tomorrow is another day.
