Lessons from the Great Masters Day 8, part 1 – 8.7.15
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.
love the elegance of the grey scale in this, Rich deep darks right on through all the way to the white of the paper. splendid!
