Color Studies

 This summer I have been focusing on making color studies from nature. These are few oil sketches I made recently, plus 2 imaginary sunsets I made last summer. The degree of realism varies from sketch to sketch, but focusing only on the illusion of light, I think one can see the difference between working directly from nature and working from imagination.

Please see below for an earlier post on the subject of color studies, plus a link to an excellent short essay on the nature and purpose of color studies written by the sculptor Sandra Shaw.
