|Color Study 5, 10x8 acrylic by Carol Nelson|
The 5th in my Color Study series, this one has a little modeling compound applied to the paper before I started painting. I was after a more muted palette than my usual boisterous color party.
I had not intended on doing a landscape, but it formed on the paper in front of me, so what else could I do. The addition of the bush forms really confirmed that it was a landscape.
I like high horizon landscapes because you can do so much abstraction with the majority of the painting. If you cover up the upper quarter of this painting, it becomes a total geologic abstract.
