Tiny Color Studies by MarcoBucci Tiny Color Studies by MarcoBucci
In my book, there is a short essay on the importance of doing small studies from life to help you understand the nature of light and color. Here's a selection of small oil studies from my archives. These are tiny...maybe 2x3". I consider these studies perhaps the most useful thing I do for myself as an artist.

They all look great!
I don't think I'll get outdoors studying this way any time soon, though I do realize it is super-good.
For now, I'll just study your studies. The lower left one is amazing.

are they each, individual tiny boards, or just a bunch
on one board? just wondering because you mentioned that they're only 2x3 inches. my gosh, you must use the tinest brush.
once again, really beautiful work. love painting, just never seem to have the time myself.

Thanks! These are each on their own small board. I just buy 11x14" masonite boards, gesso them, and slap em on the table saw. That way I always have a pile of blank ones to grab when I need them.
My brushes range from size 2-6 usually when I paint these. Flat sables.
