“For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life – the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.” –Claude Monet

This is a color study I completed to better understand how many different colors exist in an object. For instance, a tree is not just different shades of brown. A tree can be green, gray, blue, purple, magenta, and yes, brown. You have to dismiss your preconceptions about the way things are. In order to truly see, you have to squint. Things need to get blurry before they become clear.
