Shapes of Color

At the color workshop I took recently, 
we did an exercise using cut paper.

That gave me the idea for this challenge;
Break down a complex subject
 into just large shapes of color.

"Woods Waking Up"
(3) 12  x 12 oils on canvas 

I painted these over old paintings
 so the surface was really rough.
 That helped me loosen up and 
focus on the flat shapes of color. 
The whole thing was a surprise. 

I've been reading
Ken Kewley: Notes On Color 
and it has inspired me to think and see a little differently.
The discoveries are endless.
