Playing With Color

Playing With Color

6x8in oil on canvas 100.

I am still doing the red studies and on this one I surrounded the jug with sheets of colored tissue paper.
If this were a white jug then all the colors would have reflected back into it but this red, being a deep value, absorbed the paler colors. I did discover that the cool light from the window reflected a lavender color onto the plane facing it.
This was a lot of fun and I enjoyed doing it.
One more red study to do and then I am off to Santa Fe, NM. to paint with some friends for 5 days. I will be sure to keep up with my will be a good excuse to do some really small plein air pieces.
