Random Artwork Wednesday: “Does It Gotta Be Exact?”

I recently read about camaïeu, which is the technique of painting an image entirely in tints of a single color. When camaïeu is done in yellow it is called cirage. The specificity of this word fascinated me, and I decided I wanted to paint a cirage geometric abstract. Camaïeu paintings are usually done in two or three tints. To reflect that, I painted this with the yellow tempera paint I normally use, plus two paints I have never used before: sunshine yellow gloss enamel and a translucent yellow matte spray paint meant for use on polycarbonate.
