JUST DON'T HESITATE TO EXAGGERATE COLOR AND LIGHT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT TELLING LIES. THE MOST TIRESOME PICTURES ARE THE STUPIDLY TRUTHFUL ONES - Wm Merritt Chase

Today's Study is a Mourning Dove
This is today's study for my 75 for $75 project. Often, I use complementary colors for the background but on this piece, I used the same colors that I used for the bird, except for a bit of green here and there. Where the bird is dark, I used a lighter color behind it and where the bird is light, as on the chest, I darkened the background. If you want to make something look lighter, put a darker color around it.
