Adding More Contrast to New Paintings

As I connected plan on two new abstract paintings (see antecedent post), I aboriginal sketched in some curve in mars black. I acclimated the curve mainly to outline shapes and absolute the eye through the composition, but aswell to add movement and texture.
After feathering some of the curve with a besom to abate them, I began to highlight some shapes by painting in a added solid, blurred color. I did this with some of the titanium white and the peach.
Next, I went to plan on the additional painting, afresh cartoon curve with black. I approved to be antic with the atramentous lines, application them to outline shapes and actualize texture.
After these curve dry, I’ll do added plan with the colors and composition.
