Color Studies



In my book, there is a short essay on the importance of doing small studies from life to help you understand the nature of light and color. Here's a selection of small oil studies from my archives. These are tiny...maybe 2x3". I consider these studies perhaps the most useful thing I do for myself as an artist.

Oh wow, I love these, so much information in these little paintings. Do you paint these on a panel, multiple paintings per panel or do you use another method for this?

Thanks!
Erik - I usually buy a bunch of masonite board, gesso it, then slap it on the table saw and cut it up. I keep them in the studio so I just grab a few when I think I'll need them.
Sometimes helps to mix a fast-drying medium in with the regular medium so they dry quicker.
