Color of Light

detail in progress, oil/canvas

Ironically, the best way to study color temperature is by wrapping light around and through white objects.  An object's shadows are colored by its' world. Blue sky is a much more interesting environment for an artist than the dull gray studio walls in vogue now with "academic artists". Controlled still life surroundings work well for students who need to limit what life throws at them but for the rest of us there are more interesting ways to compel the eye.
