Step One: two values
I painted this twilight scene from my neighborhood using a burnt umber value study. The first step is just the lightest and darkest values. In the second step I wipe out the middle values leaving the lightest and darkest and in step three I added color but you'll have to tune in tomorrow to see the finish. That was not an intentional tease but there is so much glare on the photo that I just can't post it ;)
Also, check out Barbara Stroud's eclectic art, food and style blog. Barbara lives in Charleston, South Carolina, is widely traveled and is a big art lover who has featured some wonderful painters on her blog. I was truly proud to be featured two years ago today! Go there to see a link to that post and wonderful shots of Charleston which is a city I can't wait to visit!
