Day 10 of 30 - Sept 10

I have been experimenting with color, or better stated, more color than usual for me.
My tendency is to use subtle value changes and neutralized colors. Blues are my go-to favorites, as you can obviously tell.
This small painting started with many dark layers. Then I collaged a small misshapen square of handmade paper on the surface. Adding and subtracting paint and line work, I eventually scraped much of the paint off the paper and then smoothed yellows and golds over a grid.
Some of the remaining colors were much darker, but blending cold wax and solvent over the surface left a blue violet mixture. There is actually a 3D effect going on since the paper was so thick.
