Circular Divisions

This triptych painting is a simple pattern of lines and circles.  It's really more of a color study than anything else.  The top section is cool palette which gets warmer towards the bottom of each canvas.

Heavy application of modeling compound prior to painting gives the mottled look because the modeling compound absorbs color differently than primed canvas.  I like the variation that occurs naturally.

What a beautiful color harmony you selected. The mottling you described adds so much to this trio. I was recently in a plane and saw crop circles which this reminds me of. Neat!
