Color Studies

This series of oil paintings are from my 2015 attendance at the Studio Escalier atelier program in Argenton-Chateau, France. It was a memorable few months and I learned so much about light reflection and creating accurate chroma, and especially enjoyed that we painted using natural light from large skylights. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful and muscular ballet dancer for our live model while working in a 200+ year old converted attic studio in the middle of the French countryside. It was a real artists' paradise. (See also 'Studio Escalier' for more artwork from this program)
