3 of 100 for 100 Painting Challenge - "Pushing Through"

"Pushing Through" - 6" x 6" mixed media on paper - $75 includes mat & shipping in Continental US

So far I'm loving the neutral colors.  The build-up of layers with gesso, graphite, acrylic paints, charcoal, gel mediums and color pencils gives these pieces the illusion of lots of texture, though the texture isn't necessarily raised off the paper.

I just want to clarify this is a 100 Paintings challenge vs. a 100 Paintings in 100 Days - so I may be posting several photos in one day and other days I won't be posting anything.  The goal is to paint a total of 100 paintings, and my personal challenge is going to be the use of neutral colors.  I know it's early on but I am enjoying the challenge more than I thought I would, and love exploring composition and values again.  Let's see if I can say that at the 50/100 mark!!
