Value Study for Cirrus Clouds
5"x7" oil on linen panel
In the second lesson in the Painted Sky class with Deborah Paris, we are observing and painting clouds. Most of my observations for the workshop are clouds over water or over the shore at the water's edge. I started with the cirrus, which are usually easy to find in the summer on the Maine coast. We begin with a value study using a mid tone paper, charcoal and white-ish pastel, followed by the painting using the value study as a reference. Note the color gradation in the painting, not visible in the value study.
