While waiting for paint to dry on Brandon No. 2, I did some sketching for fun from a photo of a bouquet from my friend’s recent wedding in New Hampshire. It’s not great, as I only had one charcoal pencil and no sharpener but it was good practice!picstitch (1)

This is the second painting of an acrylic series studying light and depth perception within a color family. Unfortunately, I’ve had a really tough time documenting these paintings due to poor lighting! The “white’ at the top is misleading and due to glare by light from above.  I’ll be adding more family members, once canvases go on sale again! the colors really take on their own emotional aspects through that, plays on the concept of seeing. My goal is to explore the emotional relationship with color, given that each canvas’s color range will possess the same light to dark range but already these two Brandons “feel” quite different!
