Camp 20 Creek color vibration study w/red undertone
6"x 6" oil mounted on stained luan


I did a number of works experimenting with reddish
undertone following some study of the teachings of
Edgar Payne and Emile A. Gruppe. Red is the opposite
color of greens, and contrasting green paint against
a reddish undertone excites the greens, and causes the
brushstroke to feel as to better imitate light. This
was one such study...
