I really like varying the texture and blending which comes from palette knife and good old brush work. I focused on keeping the big shapes I had initially laid in and worked with warm and cool grays to form a circular path for the eye. As we've had lots of gray days here lately, I didn't have to stretch my imagination to conceive colors! I am liking my latest efforts at mixing grays, finding that it is a wonderful way of getting to know my colors. If anyone has their own technique for mixing grays, please feel free to share!
