Getting a little "out there"!

Coming up with painting subjects that use a very limited palette, as well as simple beginner techniques is becoming easier. A little fun with bright colors in an abstract this time; I used only Raw Umber, Cadmium Yellow, and Titanium White. The challenge for beginners is to create a smooth graduation of values in two sections, and of course, render lots of smooth curved edges with a scriptliner brush.

Enough with the beginner projects for a while! My next painting project is intermediate and takes me back to my typical, crazy subject matter (from my imagination) as I paint the origin of the term “cowlick”!
