Productive day in the studio! Seems quite fitting given it is the day before my week-long painting workshop in Toronto. Yes, it is another horse eye study..Guess this one makes title of Horse Eye Study #III
I can’t say enough great things about this book! I love it and I love Vicki’s work! I love her bold use of colour, her detailed explanations on colour mixing, various colour schemes..etc! If you are a painter and love colour, I strongly recommend this book.
Today’s painting, I created using an Analogous colour scheme ~ colours beside each other on the colour wheel, which Vicki discusses in the book. Alizarin Crimson as my base, spreading out to Violet and up to Orange + Titanium White.
I quite happy with this painterly oil study. The violet and orange mixed well to get some decent greys for shadows. Pure hits of colour I used Cad Orange and Alizarin..learning to love Alizarin BTW…as long as I don’t wear white in the studio!!
Painting is very wet, so I will post a better pic when I return from my workshop. Purchase inquiries may come to me, firstname.lastname@example.org
