New Paintings and Oceanus 1

New paintings started today. 18 in total using raw sienna, indian red, azo yellow and an olive green. An unusual colour and given to me, so trying out a hue never usually sourced myself. As with all colours the manufacturers' mix is at pigment stage so even the tertiary colours and greys have a luminosity hard to match when mixing on the palatte. With these new paintings I have bgun all with low key colours pushing a shape in different direction. These feel like somehting new. Not done this before. I have also started Oceanus 1, wavy banner project first side. The theme of movement and wave providing impetus for a painting of linear form.
