Back Bay Dredging - value sketch
I have spent the last 2 days at a plein air pastel workshop given by Kim Lordier. It has been fun and filled with new information to wrap my brain around. Kim is an amazing pastel artist . I feel very grateful to get to take 3 days to paint out in the Newport Back Bay and Laguna. The sketch shown is a study in value and keeping it straight. Commiting to a value and staying with it is not always easy. It is important to the overall structure of a composition. It makes the idea stay together. Anyway it has been very good and I look forward to tomorrow.
