Sunrise Walk, pastel, 11x14
This morning I taught a private class with a student who had lots of Canson Mi-Teintes paper on hand, so we thought we'd work on that today. I've also been impressed by other artists who manage to work well on this surface when many of us have given up on it once we had other, more versatile options at our disposal. So I dug deep into the depths of my studio storage cabinet and found one lone sheet of grey Canson paper. This is a scene I've painted before, but it worked well for a great exercise in blocking in shapes and values for today's demo.
