A Winter Walk, pastel, 11 x 14
This was part two of a winter landscape series I'm doing in my Wednesday and Thursday classes. In this week's scene we had more snow to work with, which had lots of sunlight and shadows. Getting values correct in the snow was tricky. I found that after Wednesday's demo, I had to lighten my shadows quite a bit and warm up parts of the sunlit snow. Shown here is that "adjusted" demo from Wednesday.
