|Front Porch Petunias, pastel, 9 x 12|
I accidentally deleted this blog post from last week (rrrrr!). But I wanted to at least repost the image of this demo from last week's class. We worked from a photo (shown below) and during my demo I kept my underpainting fairly abstract, connecting all elements of the same value in the beginning stages, separating them later with color. I used a monochromatic underpainting (dark blue with some very dark purple in the darkest areas) with alcohol on mounted Uart paper.
