Color Theory and Flocks of Pigeons

Another few pages from my sketchbook which began its life as a copy of famed French cartoonist Andre Francois's book The Tattooed Sailor.  Now dubbed The Tattooed Sailor & His Devoted Artist.  Click here to see how one became the other.  Click here to scroll through the pages.

I struggle with the whole color temperature concept... in every media.  I get it intellectually - I've read lots of books/articles on color theory, I've done these exercises a zillion times, I've stuck post-it notes on my easel and palette -- but it just doesn't click in practice.  Or at least I don't think it does... But, don't get me wrong. It's a fun struggle.

Such stunning pages! The color theory is something I would proudly hang on my wall.
