shadowed road

This lesson is called “Light, shadow, and value outdoors” and I quite enjoyed it. The road turned out to be a weird band-aid color, but I enjoyed the shadow colors and how to blend them. It was interesting to me that they were not made from adding black to the previous color (which is how I would have done it) but rather mixing a darker version of the color using black and a base color. For the road shadows the author recommends adding burnt sienna.

twilight tree

This exercise was about layering over and underpainting and can I say that I’m really loving working with glazes! I’m not a fan of his tree silhouettes, but I may redo this one and the previous tree using reference photos for the tree shapes.

I hope you have a beautiful day!
