Standing Tall, pastel, 12 x 9
This was my demo from Monday's class this week, which ended the fall quarter for this particular class. Since we're heading into the winter months, and I'm also in the midst of a series on the winter landscape in my other classes, I thought it was fitting to end this class with a snow scene. In my demonstration, I focused on color temperature and values in the snow, and how to handle the barren, winter "stick" trees without rendering every branch.
