What I thought might be a quick sample of using Color Wheel Five to paint the view through and beyond my kitchen turned into an all day struggle.

View beyond the kitchen

The problem spot in the painting is the table.  I changed the hue and value of the both the top and the draping cloth at least a dozen times. The light through the windows continued to change and my value sketch offered little help.  In spite of the struggle, I enjoyed every minute of the challenge, keeping colors clean and using both full intensity and neutralized hues.

Painting:  oil sketch on gessoed birch wood panel 5″ x 7″
