Colour studies

It seems that colour studies are a thing that people do - basically little speedpaints focusing on colour (and by extension, light) and working on establishing a scene or atmosphere quickly.
These ones were probably 15 mins each, I used a few scenes from the movie The Fall.

It's been my experience that my paintings don't really "emerge" until quite late in the process, and I often abort before that point because I'm mostly just doing sketches or practices from references... it's quite unsatisfying to do that but so be it! I guess all the practicing should mean that I get through those early stages quicker and with better foundations, at least.
