Colors Studies

Right now I'm working on oils for The Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland in November.  Yesterday I decided to try some simple little color studies of Maryland's Eastern detail, just mood.  These little paintings are a way of working out colors - how one color works against another.  I like the way they're turning out.  This little piece is done on a 4" x 4" panel.  I painted the panel a dark color then did a 2.5" square landscape on the dark paint which makes the moody landscape colors even more intense.


  1. Really nice! I like the concept of a little gem like that.

  2. What a great little piece! Can't wait to see more of it and others at Easton. Paint away, Adele!
