Studio 365: Day 189

Day 189 i

Lessons from the Great Masters Day 8, part 1 – 8.7.15

Day 189 ii

Today’s lesson was entitled Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot: balance of light and dark elements. The image started simply with a light wash followed by dark solid shapes leaving sky-holes within the foliage and painting a single tree-trunk within the reserved white of the sky. Highlights were created scraping the paint away with a sharp knife. Look for the color exercise tomorrow.
