4 Color Painting

Sometimes it is fun to limit a painting to certain perimeters.  I decided to try these four colors in my art journal as part of an assignment from Carla Sonheim’s year long class:


I used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics in Medium Magenta, Cadmium Orange, Payne’s Gray and a light gray blend (Titanium White mixed with Payne’s Gray).

I don’t think it is done.  What would you do to complete it?

Would you add another color?  Glue collage on top? Add a quote or a poem?

I look forward to hearing your ideas!

Cheers! 🙂
