Sept. 19 Demo

Off in the Distance, pastel, 12 x 9
In my Monday class we worked from a black and white photo in order to focus on matching values rather than colors.  Several students in this class are new to the medium and have a limited number of pastels, so this takes the pressure off of not having enough colors in their supply.  But it's also a great exercise for anyone wanting to develop a better eye for values, while also becoming more interpretive with color.  This is my demo painting from the class.
