abstract gray, finished version, #1 of 2
This is the first phase of two abstract paintings, using gray tones. In the first phase, I'm laying down high values of grays and whites, going from thin washes to impasto. I'm using palette knives, a crumbled up piece of paper, and my fingers to apply the paint.
