both 10x10 pastel on BFK
I continue to search for two trees and their color. Morning color, especially early morning is so neutralized (the land lacks light)..except the sky which glows pink, yellow orange with a touch of green depending on time and weather. I keep trying to work with purer colors and make my neutrals. It's more the feel of the light...but how much local color is needed? How much intuitive color? How much warm color and how much cool? I posted both the doomed one from yesterday for Nika (left) and today's equally doomed.
Meanwhile I play with the shapes. I think I need to go back to the site to study.
Today I looked at my studio wall of small works and I realized how my recent work stood out (at least to me.) My recent use of higher chroma hues grabs attention. I just need to learn to harness it.
