A Conversation, art and otherwise

Welcome to the art blog of Mike Menius, Northern CA plein air painter. Please join the ongoing conversation about art, the studio projects, etc.

Here is the finished version of the second-of-two gray abstract paintings.  The first is already shown in earlier blogs.  You are welcome to compare the two.  Each painting began with an abstract study in pale grays.  Then medium value grays were added, to complete the composition.  Finally, colors were added, as well as textures, temperatures, etc.  The colors are not random, but were chosen to follow the underlying structure and to create an overall harmony with each other.
