Extreme Compositions Shape Arrangements 2

Lesson 2

Part 2 

Arrangements of one shape, black, gray, and white, circles. I really tried to work one these more intuitively and take risks. Some were done on backgrounds of black acrylic paint done with a brayer. Left over paints from the previous series. Used mostly dry media, ink intense pencils, watercolor crayons, oil pastels, plus water in some cases blotted with tissue.  All were done on 5 x 7" white bristle.

Observations:  These came out a bit darker than expected because of the backgrounds. The brayer marks made straight edges which made some square looking shapes which wasn't in the equations.
Love some of the textures and effects, I will have to write down some of the steps to really remember what I did ... or not?
