Day 22 - Plaid

Plaid, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", NFS
Day 22 of the 30 Day Challenge

Today, I decided to play with transparent layers that overlap to create a plaid pattern. I used magenta, yellow, and pthalo blue to create the patterns - where they overlap, I got green, orange and purple. I used black lines to create movement and variety. I got stuck when I got to the two rectangles I had reserved as a focal point. I like the brightness of the transparent brush strokes and the variety of the overlapping areas. I clearly have more work to do on the overall composition, not least figuring out the purpose of the middle rectangles.
