Art Journal: Color Study

I totally didn't feel like working this morning, so I started with a color study in my art journal. I've been reading about collage artist Anne Ryan and picked one of her collages to look at. This isn't intended to be anything but a quick sketch (Ryan's collage is full of subtle color changes and rich textures from the paint, fabric and paper she used to make the piece that is impossible to emulate in 10 minutes with just acrylic paint), but this sketch did give me a chance to think about color combinations in a new way. As a follow-up, I may do another art journal painting with my own themes using these color combinations.
