Off the Beaten Path, pastel, 9 x 12
This week I'm having my classes work from black and white photos. It's a great way to see values more accurately. But it also helps you become more interpretive with color and think in terms of color harmony throughout the painting, since you're not trying to match the colors in the photo. Off the Beaten Path is my demo from this morning's class.
