#185 Little Miss Rainfall


5"x7" oil on masonite SOLD

Geez, I feel like I'm cheating because I painted this like 2 weeks ago before my trip and I didn't have a chance to post it until now. Seems like a long time ago. I remember really liking the ambient light underneath the umbrella and the way her big shorts hung on her little legs. I'd better pick up a brush soon before I forget more about painting. Seriously I tried to do a little digital painting the other day and had a hell of a time just judging the realative colors (especially green).

Thanks guys. :)

Mike-It must have been there. I really don't change colors. I either see a color/temperature or I don't. The only thing I do mess with is composition. I'll move something, take it out, change the size, all kinds of stuff, but I won't make up colors. At my relatively unexperience stage it seems like it would be too easy to add a false color that stands out of the color key like a sore thumb.
