I drew this color pen study for a miniature painting I will be doing this weekend...the study is actually bigger than the painting will be!  I am trying to figure out what acrylic paint colors to use in the mini...cad red light, definitely, but do I want to have a cad yellow medium glow through? Should my shadows be blues or purple?  It is the creative process, or choices that can make or break a painting.  As I stumble through it by chance or 'by golly', I hope to create a good painting.  An old art teacher of mine said that every painting should communicate something...I am not sure I agree with him!  Some paintings you do because you crave the fresh strawberries coming into season soon!
