Following the Impressionists' path with Abstracts

In a post this fall, I described pursuing a painting direction inspired by Shady Lakes(lily ponds north of Albuquerque called by another artist the Giverny of New Mexico), and showed you the first painting of a new series, Pond I. The series explores a more Impressionistic palette, each painting limited to 5 colors + white. Here are three more of said series(the 3rd may not be finished yet) using basically the same colors - what I find most appealing in this process is the creation of delicious neutrals using compliments, near-compliments and white, and of course, the experience of working with more subdued, less "Southwestern" colors.
Next post will be the finished sculpture of a pregnant young woman who has since had her baby, a little girl, and a red-head at that, I hope!
