This morning I painted this version with my glasses on.
Both acrylic on paper, 12×9″
And this afternoon I tried something I’ve wanted to try for a while. I painted the same setup again except without my glasses. Without my glasses I’m blind as a bat so I could hardly even see my palette. The painting was all a blur and obviously the setup 8′ across the room was one big blur. I didn’t put my glasses on again until I was done.
In reality these are much closer in color. I was surprised to see them side-by-side. I used the same palette but I wouldn’t have guessed that my mixtures would end up so similar.
