garden color study (3)

I like my crazy little color studies for up-coming largish landscapes.  This one measures 13.5 x 9 inches.  Unfortunately they are nearly impossible to photograph properly.  They are hard to “read,” as it is, their whole raison d’etre being color.  Que sera sera.  What is most interesting about the study — the character of the color relationships — is also the feature that causes the photography challenge, that and Mother Nature’s grey mantle this morning, and my general naivety about the technical aspects of photography.

Later on, when it really matters, I’ll have to rephotograph all the finished works (not the studies).  I just post the studies and the work in progress stuff as a record for myself and hopefully as entertainment for my internet friends.

The study is painted using acrylic paints on unstretched canvas primed with clear acrylic.
