Paintober, Day 5 – Half Measures

I began this morning’s painting by forming half-circles of burnt sienna in the center of the postcard, then mirroring every shape on its opposite side. Starting with lemon and forest green, I mixed every color with titanium white as an experiment, since the medium itself is a less vibrant shade of white.

After several strokes, I became curious as to what would happen if I switched from a brush to a sponge (hence the fire in the center), and then to a paper towel (represented here by the ultramarine blue / cobalt blue blend).
