3″ x 3″ Color Study

3" x 3" - image 7

This hiatus from painting, which originally seemed like a good idea has left me feeling somewhat lost. It seems like I forgot how to mix color or create and image. The images I created this weekend were studies done primarily to work on the issue of color and a looser hand

I love the highlights and range of color. This piece seems to really help me see more possibilities. I would like to push the darks much farther since this piece has so much room for a bigger range.

Even though there was no intended image or reference this picture reminds me of the times you spend outside in the rain at night. When the reflections create a glow and the water causes the continued repetition of light to flicker all the way down the street. Its calming.

Three Hundred and Sixty-One!

Sometimes you start an image with one character and suddenly the image calls for another. That’s exactly what happened in this image. The hand gestures of the male Raccoon indicated he was telling a story. Naturally he needed a date and once I started painting her I was forced to address the background. The painting was totally responsive which is why the formatting is somewhat off. Typically my layout is better. Enjoy and see you next time!
