January 6, Coming Up For Air

There are times it is really hard to see what an actual color is, especially with one of these sleek buggers, underwater, with bright sunshine beaming through and shaking everything up!  It is important to look really closely and to not think about WHAT I am painting (fur, water, eyeball) but what COLOR am I looking at, and more honestly, I want to see what VALUE-  is it darker or lighter than the area next to it?
And then there's that problem of being too close to the work as well, and that it is truly a good practice to step away, probably every half an hour or so, to give yourself some distance so you can see what you're doing!  This one looks SO much better to me now!

6x6 acrylic on wood, $75 click here to make this YOURS!

And I meant to post this one last night, but was having technical difficulties with the internet at home, and then had to go to a Cub Scout meeting and help make snakes from toilet paper tubes and brass fasteners.... you know how that goes...
