Neutral Mix

For this group of twenty-three paintings, each a different size, some vertical others horizontal, I mixed pairs of complementary pigments with white. Since pigments do not follow the rules of the color chart the resulting grays were varied. These colors were painted onto linen canvases prepared with rabbit skin glue and white lead. While the brush stroke was primarily vertical it could be slanted.
