The start of a new abstract painting – and a new animation

B-major-work-in-progress-glyph

This animated gif shows the initial stages of the background for a new painting in my Painting Music: Colour study series.  Each painting is monochrome or has a very limited colour range.

The theory behind the series is tonality – the note sequences used to produce music.  In modern Western music, most music fits the diatonic system.  There are 13 major and 13 related minor keys.

This new picture – B major, is based on the violet range.
