Tuesday



Wow, I was able to post this photo today! At Tuesday's art class we did this little study of light and shadow. First we drew the picture out including drawing the lines of shadow. then we took a dark purple color and painted in the shadow. At that point the painting is very dramatic and yet very simple with just the shadows painted. I then let the girls wash in some skin tones, but we kept the painting very simple since the point was to see the shadow and the values therein.

Beautiful. Very dramatic. Like a well written story -- not a wasted stroke.
