"Grey I," 6" x 8", acrylics on museum quality panel, depicting a gray Schleich model pony, $329 to the first asking nicely.
The light is grim in Michigan today, which meant I could set up a still life in the studio and not have much ambient light change affect my setup.
I pulled out this Schleich pony, on loan from a fan who happens to live in my neighborhood AND her daughter dances with mine (go figure! we didn't even know that!), and set out a limited palette.
Cadmium Yellow Dark
There is such luminosity here and delicate transitions to my planes - I enjoyed carving this painting out immensely!
So much so that I grabbed another pony and got him all lit dramatically. And then realized it was time to start shuttling kids to and fro. But, once we all are home again, I want to have another go at this. Maybe after dinner and homework.
In process pics (including Gray II) are here.
Who will join me in working with this palette and discovering all the beauty in gray?
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork,
