It was a bit mind boggling to try and switch from painting based mainly on color value to painting based more on color temperature. I think I nearly gave myself a cerebral hemorrhage. By the time I finished the shoe, and began doing the shadow, my brain cells curled into a ball and gave up. At that point, I really didn't have a clue as to what to use for the shadow colors, so I splashed on some of the colors I used in the shoe, put down my brush and backed slowly away from the easel. Fear not, no shoes were harmed in the making of this painting.
My left brain says I should be a responsible adult, buckle down and get back to the timed painting exercises. My right brain is stuck on the Chucks. Stay tuned to see who wins.
My Muse is holding a kitchen timer in one hand, and a chili-red Chuck in the other. To immaturity, and beyond!
