watercolor, 15 x 22 inches
Working from a class demo, I Re-worked the problems and finished this piece in a nocturnal mood idea. I had messed up some of the light values in the back and had intended to silhouette the rear boats and buildings against a lighter sky. Having messed that up, I took a reversed track and dropped the surrounding values (sky) way downward to bring the boats and buildings into an altogether different lighting situation.
While doing this I am also running a second class where discussions are afoot about clear separtations of values between light and shadow. I'll be posting early next week about that here, also. Meanwhile, I am still messin' round with the reflective piece of Miroir d' Eau.
