Oct. 5 demo
Amicalola View, pastel, 11 x 14
I did a version of this scene in two of my classes this week. This was the demo from my Wednesday class. For this painting, my goal was to highlight the drama of the vibrant blue of the mountains peaking through the trees and grassy foliage in the foreground. This was done on a prepared panel with an alcohol underpainting.
