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 Twenty Nine! 

Back to my favorite little critters. Hands up in the bathroom! I always love these type of images, they are actually the hardest for me to paint but are so rewarding. I would also like to say that this is probably the closets I’ll get to a self-portrait anytime soon. Enjoy and see you next time!
