Sphere of tones


Oil in 9x12 canvas. Another tonal study on the dramatic effects of light when it hits a sphere. This was done from plain imagination, no model, or a compas to make a perfect circle; simply brush and paint. I just thought of doing this exercise once again to have a feel of the volume of a mass like this. As simple as it looks, the experience it brings is undeniably powerful.
