10-20-15 Color Study
This color study is executed in water color paints and is a quarter of the size of the original. You'll notice it is rendered in a very loose style with no intention of accuracy, the only focus is the color. I'm looking to see if the color is right, lights against darks, shadow sides versus sunlit sides. I took the liberty of bringing the grass yard closer to the foreground than photos captured it and made the background trees denser. I think this adds to the design of the painting.
