DAILY PAINTING: Here's a color study, done in pastel, for "Eclipse 2". Studies are mere approximations, and the final canvas is always going to be its own creation. The artist can "see" the work, in his or her mind's eye, in a way that no study can suggest. A study is only a way to "think" on paper, to see proportions and color relationships in a way that's more tangible than a mental image.
