Apple study changed 11x15 cm oil on gessoed card. click image to enlarge
The subject for this was study was the valuestructure, I wanted to paint the wall darker and see if It would work. Of course I painted it lighter and the ground plane darker, this happens so easy see image below. I got lost in the picture and forgot what it was about.
So I decided to sacrifice some of the fun brushwork on the ground plane and lower the value of the wall with a bluish grey to represent the light in order to get the valuestructure I want. Here the diagonal is not so strong which make it speak more quiet and less I dont know chaotic maybe, but still has a dark feeling to it. The upper left should have a bit darker value, however think the painting now has a better balance.
