I find that translating into color is a bit more challenging. I love black and white. Want to continue with the black and white 5 minute studies. I will show some of these tomorrow when I can photograph in natural light.
One thing I must keep in mind is to keep it simple. I could have simplified more and made it more interesting...hmmmmmmmm

I am laying myself out there very naked and I know that what I am doing isn't the best.....but if I don't try and grow and challenge myself I will always remain where I don't want to be.

I worked on some collages this evening because I have a bit of a block against painting. It is time I think to have the color calibrated because the color isn't exactly right. Have you ever experienced a block? Every now and again it happens to me and I am at a loss as to how to get past it. I did some reading about a block and the suggestion was to work on something that would be different from my painting. It was relaxing to just work with composition, colour, and shape. I chose to work with these darker more neutral colors. I seem to work a great deal in high key and I just wanted to challenge myself to work in a deeper palette. The colors are really very pretty but they don't look that way. I will ask my husband to do the calibration.

This is a copy of a photograph that I saw on FB. I wanted to give credit to Beautiful Dreamers's Photography. I generally never copy...
I have a tendency to overwork a painting and this was an attempt to limit brushstrokes and to work quickly and deliberately...... ...
This is in response to a request......
