|Last Bit of Light, pastel, 12 x 16|
Saturday, November 5, 2011
This was a demo that I worked on in both my Wednesday and Thursday classes this week. With my reference photo having much of the image area in shadow, my objective was to increase the color vibrancy in the shadows to make those areas more exciting. Many artists typically like to pump up the color in the sundrenched highlight areas, but I find that there's also lots of opportunity to do this in the shadows.
