Long hours in the studio and crazy paint fume induced inspiration are leading to lots of pieces for a busy art season! These two color studies were recently inspired by paint smears on my palette. Inspiration is found in the wildest of places as of late- the top right study being one of them. I love how paint residue settles in the linseed oil medium and I was awestruck by a perfect color combo found floating in the oil this week and had to emulate it in a color study. Mmmmm. Color!
