day 199 – four tangential studies

I usually make a study before I make a painting, it helps me work out composition and colour, and lets me keep the actual painting really fresh.  In the same box with all my palette studies is every study I’ve made, even for pieces of art that don’t (directly) connect with bodies of work.  Some of the paintings made from these studies were given away for art auctions, and now the study is the only memory of the piece.
