Carol Marine Workshop Day 2
Day two of our workshop, Carol gave us an assignment in painting values. The parameters were to use one color ( I used burnt umber) to create three paintings, each with a different value being dominant. The paintings were timed. The first painting was done in 30 minutes, the second in 15, and the third in 5! The idea is to try to simplify the painting enough to capture the essence of the object using value. My first painting of the mug is light-value dominant, the second painting of the pitcher is mid-value dominant, and the third painting of the egg cup is dark-value dominant. This worthwhile exercise was challenging and fun!
