Day 4 - Building the Grid

Building the Grid, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $75

Day 4 - Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge

This paintings is based on another of the value sketches that I created last week. Once I got the shapes painted in, I decided the pattern looked a lot like some seriously messed up argyle socks. So I added some orange patches to break things up and to add interest and then came up with idea of adding grid lines. I think it's pretty interesting now and the underlying pattern and color unity hold it all together. Also, the grid lines serve to loosen up a rigid design.
