Painterly values

This morning Emily gave a graphite on mylar demo. We then selected a location to first do a monotone value study using a subtractive technique, followed by a full color study.  Was it Sophomore slump? was it exhaustion?  We start painting at 8:30 with time out for a quick lunch and dinner plus a break watching slides of various artists works until 8:30 pm. There’s life drawing from 8:30 pm to 10 pm. We’ve carried and carted supplies, wet canvases and palettes across the rolling hills of this campus. (morning images to come) 

Wednesday afternoon painting and yet after lunch was magic and many if us were feeling successful this afternoon.  I painted the view across the great lawn.

    Oh beautiful! I wish I could paint like that! Every day I look forward to seeing what is next.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Love, your cousin, Sally.
