Color study

The finished study in watercolor and gouche…. have not paid enough attention to edge work.. not satisfied with it but I didn’t want to be too detail oriented and finicky in a quick study of this type:

Some sketchbook pages

On the right side of this spread below is a color study of a painting by Richard Schmid that I have started doing, yet to complete it though. The other pages are ones from some time ago. I had wanted to add a gold arabesque to the background of the prayer written by the Mother, Mirra Alfassa, have yet to do it. The one in the middle is of a bright sun cloudscape study.

Color studies

Just finished these color studies today. Each have a range of values in the same color family and I tried to shift the highlights and shadows to the adjacent or to the complementary color family. I feel I should have pushed them a bit more:

Munsell hue circles

I have just finished making some new hue circles. I wanted to place my paints in the right positions in the munsell circle:

Abstract artwork

I had not been doing anything in color from a long time, I am going through a tough time personally and it has been hard to get out the colors, today I thought I would do a simple exercise in color studies from the Virtual art academy course to sort of ease into the process, but I ended up with this abstract artwork inspired from a mushroom. The whole thing has been done wet-in-wet after I had carefully mixed in all the colors before hand:
