BLOCK STUDY

This seems simple, but was tricky.  I chose to make the bright blue table cloth increase in saturation in the distance, which is not usually done. Usually with distance, chroma goes down, but I had to work with that bright red block on top and so it needed to match the intensity. I guess you had to be there. Block studies are great for clarifying painting issues and anyway I like the struggle.
