A Good Luck Day

A Good Luck Day    oil on canvas    30" x 15"

A Good Luck Day (detail)

Still working today with a long format, this time vertical. I did a 3 value rough sketch this time in cad. red. That allowed me to think about color and still keep my values in place. My biggest challenge was not to carry the color too far and I did tone it down quite a bit. I find it is always easier to start with intense color, then gray it, rather than the reverse.
