Still Life in Pots
There are some color combinations that neither my scanner nor my camera seem to like. I have tried for two days to adjust this scan to better match the painting ... in the painting, the yellows and golds and even browns are far more subtle, and the entire work, though light with dark contrast, is not as bright .... This image comes the closest though.
It was an experiment in splattering again, but with a bit more control toward the finish. I want to play more with this idea. The 'splattering' for me helps me keep those wet in wet blends without getting too tight or covering them too much. The 'lost and found' edges that I've been playing with through the 'inspired by series' also was at work here - but looking at this yet again, I can see how I could have worked even more of those into the piece.
We've a ton of chores to do today ... so I'll be scarce - but I do hope to return to this type of exercise before the weekend is over.
Hope your day is wonderful!
