"Rocks II" is the second abstract I've done that was inspired by granite slabs. I'm getting more comfortable with painting abstracts but it still isn't really my thing. I'm much too literal to see things in an abstract way.
This is very different from my usual painting style. I've never felt comfortable with abstract painting. It does not come easily to me. However, I recently spent quite a bit of time in granite yards while we were picking counter tops for our house and was inspired by the beautiful stone configurations in some of the slabs. This is the first in a short series of my rock inspirations. I also used a limited palette of Ultramarine Blue, Raw Sienna and Burnt Sienna. This could also be considered an alternative primary palette using the Raw Sienna as the yellow and the Burnt Sienna as the red.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
