Returning to Abstract

I decided to go back to my triptych painting on the wall after painting portraits for several weeks. It felt good to be able to swing that brush across the canvas.

First I covered the muddy colors of red and brown with cerulean blue and cad yellow. From dull to bright. But too bright. The combination of cad yellow and blue gave almost a neon green. My objective in this abstract was to paint more neutral. So I worked with burnt umber and cerulean blue which definitely toned down the canvas. Now it’s heading in the direction I want.
