This piece was hard to photograph.

I just finished a week of color study with Charles Miano who demonstrated through out the week.
We looked at a variety of light keys and practiced a progression of building the image with color as it related to the light key. This painting was done on the last day under natural light as I just began to put the information together.This is a basic beginning.
