|color Study 3, 10x8 acrylic by Carol Nelson|
So, what is this Color Study series, you may ask? It's playing with design, composition, and color combinations on 8x10 wc paper. If I come up with something I really like (they're not ALL my favorites), they may end up painted on canvas or panel in a larger format.
These studies are an excellent way to learn composition, try new things, and practice mixing your paints in an informal way. I see many students in my classes who have not taken the time to really get to know their paints.
If you create a dud on 8x10 wc paper, who cares? If your dud is 24x30, you end up very frustrated and your POCKETBOOK CARES!
