6x8in oil on canvas SOLD
This was a quick demo to show how to work on a color
study for a large painting.
Here I am exploring warm and cool overlays for vibrations.
You can see them bouncing around. I scumbled a lot of this
using the side of the brush. It gives a broken brushwork effect.
The final painting lost a lot of the looseness and vibrations
of this study and this is where personal taste comes in.
Knowing what you like and don't like about a painting is very important.
Libby Fife and I had a neat blog discussion on taste in art.

She was kind enough to respond. I really enjoy hearing
other artist's viewpoints.
