Backgrounds 81-83 - Three Works in Progress

Today is unbelievably warm with the temperature making it to 52F (11.1C) and a lot of the snow melting. Tomorrow is supposed to be a lot warmer; perhaps I will be able to work in my garden.

These are three backgrounds created by using the remaining acrylic paint from yesterday's workshop with Lucy Manley.

Background 83

The first one was a mix of cadmium red, cadmium yellow, titanium white and a little raw sienna.

This second painting was a combination of titanium white, cadmium red, Cerulean blue and ultramarine blue.

The last piece is various mixtures of alizarin crimson, titanium white, ultramarine blue and Cerulean blue. 

I will post each of these pieces at a later date once more work on them has been completed.
