Frozen Marsh at Dusk, pastel, 9 x 12
My demo from today's class. The objective was to keep within a narrow value range. Other than a few darks in the distant trees, the values are mainly on the high end of the scale with only very subtle differences as you move through the scene. Most all of my students keep their pastels arranged in value order, which makes it much easier to achieve correct values.
