I spent a couple of hours in the studio this afternoon, fleeing the house before I started bouncing off the walls. Too much time in one place, but my dining table is clear -- for the nonce, at least.
I brought home a pile of possibilities (the inventory is getting low, and then I keep buying the same color families again and again. On my laptop, these colors are very accurate; I don't know what anybody else sees. I am not dealing with the composition or placement at this moment; just the color of the background. In the meantime, I am putting this aside and getting back to something else.
