There are many different things that inspire me in my studio, and as much as I love being outdoors, my work is never really landscape oriented. I love to paint people or more abstract things, and the landscape itch just hasn't hit me yet.
I realize though, that the colors of the outside always make it into my palette. On a walk this Saturday I took some photographs for color inspiration. The rusty reds, muted greens, bright blues, and specks of an almost unnatural bright red amidst all of the various green tones caught my eye.
I can't wait to pull these sources into my studio for color inspiration for my next few portraits.
Aren't the colors of Autumn just lovely?
What inspires you?
