Keep On Truckin', color study, 6 x 6"
"Keep On Truckin'" is still a work in progress. In this small painting, I was testing out the color of the eggs, the background, and the value of the table (thus the patch of darker, more alizarin color on the table). I am constantly challenged and intrigued by the effects one area of color can have on another. Here, the eggs have been warmed up a bit. I'm just about finished with the larger 12 x 12" painting and will post it once it's dry. Time to move on!
