I've discovered several things in just 2 weeks of classes...
- Stepping back is essential. I didn't realize until last evening that the angle of top box is wrong. Unfortunately, because of the location of my easel in class, I wasn't really able to step back. Next time I'll position myself better.
- I have a desire to blend out my paint...and in this class, it's more about getting the colors and values right...and less about blending everything.
- I need not be afraid to make the darks DARK! I am really timid when it comes to the darker values. Exploring the full range of values is definitely something I'm going to work on!
- Standing for three full hours is really exhausting...next week I'm grabbing a stool to sit on for at least part of the class!
Oh...plus...David shared with the class that there is a 5-page article about him in Plein Air magazine. Very impressive! Am definitely buying that issue!!
Until next time...
