Sand Dune Shadows 2, pastel, 9 x 12
From yesterday's demo. This was from the same reference photo as Wednesday's class, but just round two for my Thursday class. I tried a different color palette on this one, using warm turquoise in the foreground shadows and slightly cooler colors overall in the tall grass. I also wanted to try softening the strokes in the more distant grass, which gives it a very different look from Wednesday's version, in which the strokes were more defined. Still undecided which I like better.
